Blazing Trails

24x36, Acrylic on Stretched Canvas with Image Wrap Border

The artist’s favorite comment so far about this work is the following: “Where are the legs?”. Most deer hunters will understand that usually one gains only a glimpse of a buck running through the woods. Usually, a hunter’s perspective is one of surprise and excitement upon stumbling across a buck in the thick woods in October. The “blazing buck” is depicted in a strong and viral stride as it literally flies over the unseen trails. The perspective of the deer’s tail which brilliantly notifies following eyes of its alarm is intentionally emphasized to catch the viewer’s attention in this painting - a view which has caused more than a few hunters to despair!
“Then will the lame leap like a deer, and the mute tongue shout for joy.
Water will gush forth in the wilderness and streams in the desert.”

Isaiah 35:5-7
“At this my heart pounds and leaps from its place.”
Job 37:1-3
“Where can I go from your Spirit? Where can I flee from your presence?”
Psalm 139:6-8
