|"Rebirth" - acrylic on masonite board 43.5 x 60.5 cm|
This is another large symbolic painting, which I completely recommend you click on because having it small doesnt do it justice!
You know I love deer girls - I love deers as a creature on its own. I have one tattooed on my foot in fact - I got it to symbolize walking with grace through my life...as well as the old celtic thought that deers lead you to where the fairies live ^^
I love that mixed in with a beautiful delicate lady as well. I had an amazing model for this, so thank you to Michelle (michelle izzard is widening her eyes right now :P) for going along with my scatter brain ideas and letting me paint you to the best of my ability!
To be this is a newly born deer girl (shh...newly born deer girls are very well developed ;) )
She has a wolf protector to help guide her, the baby deer symbolizes her spirit, her fragility. The owl will land on her horns and give her wisdom. It is a testiment to mother nature.
She emcompasses all things!

I am hoping that is shows as we really pooped ourselves out over here trying to create an idea, which began quite simply, into something really inspired.
The original painting for Rebirth will be for sale at my Easter show, but if you love it or want an archival print made - you know youd make my day! ^^
