Lucky's Reach, oil, enamel, shot targets, and gel transfer on canvas, wood frame, 
60 x 50 inches (click on image to enlarge)

Lucky is a fawn born last June.  I've been following his family (quite literally) for several years now.  This painting continues my Horizontal Brothers (John Muir's words for nonhuman animals) series.  It's part of a new group of paintings celebrating the Santa Fe River, a reach of which is Lucky's home turf.  The Santa Fe City Council committed to keeping water running in Lucky's Reach of this endangered river.  It's been a tremendous support to the neighborhood wildlife, including a group of three wild turkey hens I've been seeing there regularly.  
  Coming soon: a turkey painting.  Meanwhile, long may they all run.  Special thanks to the Santa Fe Watershed Association.
