I remember stories as a child talking about hunting for the stag. I asked what a stag was and I was told it was like a deer or an elk. I sat and thought about it for a while… being the precocious child I was, I finally asked, “Why chase them? If you wait long enough, they come to you. Like when Daddy goes hunting.” The look on my Grandfather’s face was stunned, then his face crinkled in a smile and his belly bounced with laughter. He said I tickled his funny bone. I never found that funny bone either. :o)
Created from a sketch, painted in Photoshop using my natural media brushes with an impressionistic style. I had 5 layers and this took me about 6 hours.
