“He came into the world in the middle of the thicket, in one of those little, hidden forest glades which seem to be entirely open but are really screened in on all sides.  There was very little room in it, scarcely enough for him and his mother...........”

The previous text is from the book: “Bambi – A Life in the Woods”, by Felix Salten. 
This aceo painting is another addition to my "Bambi" inspired paintings.
There is something I really like about painting deer in the woods.  Maybe it is because I live in the woods myself.
