Keep close to Nature’s heart….and break clear away, once in awhile, and climb a mountain or spend a week in the woods.  Wash your spirit clean. ~John Muir

The subject of this painting was one of the many mule deer we encountered in the Rockies during one of our “break aways” to the mountains.  This doe was spotted on Deer Mountain, one of our favorite places to hike to see mule deer or black-tailed deer and elk.  This is also the first mountain I ever summited via a hike, around 6 miles round trip and tricky climb for some of us height challenged/short-legged hikers.

Be still and watch nature watch you–that’s the rule for viewing the deer on Deer Mountain.  We’ve had deer actually come to us to view us out of curiousity–pretty cool moments.

Here’s the link to this painting on the Daily Paintworks Gallery, thanks for looking:
