"Bambi is Born"

“Bambi is Born”
Original ACEO painting
2½”X3½” – official aceo size
Media – artist’s oil paint
Support – gesso prepared Strathmore illustration board
Date of work – October 2011
Sold - Thank you

“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.

"Making New Friends"

“Making New Friends”
Bambi, Faline & Gobo meet in the meadow
Original Small Format Art
Artist’s Oil Paint
5”X7” prepared Raymar canvas hardboard panel

Sold - Thank you

“The children stood stock-still and stared at each other, Gobo close beside Faline and Bambi in front of him.  None of them stirred.  They stood and gaped.
 ‘Run along,’ said Bambi’s mother, ‘you’ll soon be friends.’”

This is another painting I made based on  the book “Bambi – A Life in the Woods” by Felix Salten. 

I used professional artist’s oil paint on a gesso treated Raymar 5”X 7”canvas hardboard panel. It has a few light coats of artist oil re-touch varnish applied as a finish.
