This one is another digital oil painting.
It started as a photo of me and a baby deer that was having a bad day.
Our Chihuahua named Gumby was outside barking like crazy early one morning, so I rushed outside expecting to find a snake about to eat him up!
Nope—-this crazy little dog was running around a tiny fawn that I guess he had chased till it was confused and afraid. Old Gumby thought he was an Alpha Wolf (about a foot tall) and he had “taken down” his prey—-he had a serious swagger and attitude problem going on after that! HAHAHA!
I gently took the baby deer and cared for it till the wildlife people could come and rescue it. This photo was taken of me holding this very fawn.
Then it happened—-imagination! I saw that this could be an interesting twist on Rudolph and Santa. I had to change my huge Irish nose to a more rounded Santa nose—-hope you like it.
