Little Bambi



Bambi was my favorite, favorite movie when I was a kid. I remember playing the record on my record player over and over and I knew all those songs by heart. As an adult when I watched it I realized how dark it was and really quite sad but never the less it still ranks tops in my childhood memories.

A co-worker of mine's cousin has trail cams set up on his property in northern MN and he emails the latest pics every week. It's really been fun and a privilege to see all the animals that come by the camera - even the boyscout troop! This spring we've been watching the fawns. One was caught on camera at a very very young age and as the summer has gone by we could watch it grow. There have been others - one doe had twins and the fun thing is that each fawn has a definite and unique pattern to its spots.
For some reason that never occurred to me.

Deb:

This is a beautiful painting that reminds me of two fawns that took up residence under a tree in my backyard for a couple of weeks last summer. I had just had major surgery and would lay in my bed watching them for hours!

Thanks for sharing this painting.

Best wishes.
