V is for Virginia Deer - A Painting a Day

A to Z Challenge

"Virginia Deer" - acrylic painting  Mary Montague Sikes

Today "V" is for Virginia Deer and the many we have seen in our woods over the years. The deer were there long before we came, and I enjoy watching them. They are a nuisance when they eat the vegetables and flowers from the garden. Still, I am glad they are there.

Today's painting is 14" x 11" acrylic on stretched canvas.

I always feel so badly for the deer in our area....they have no place to roam free anymore without the threat of cars. Beautiful painting.

Our house is tuck into a few acres of woods, and deer have been known to come up and eat the hostas close to the front of the house! As you say, I'm still glad to see them; they're so beautiful. :)

Aww, very sweet. There are lots of deer who live near me and I just love seeing them when I take my dog out, they're like our neighbors. :)
