Mom's Encouraging Nuzzle--By Evergreen, Colorado Artist Barb Adkins
Mule Deer Twins just born hours ago in our yard under the Aspens.
The fawns were darling! We had never had twins born in our yard before. This was thrilling! So Darling! I kept taking photos with several great shots to choose to paint from.
The Mother was content to stay most of the day. Usually the Mother will take them off to some other safe place a few hours after birth.
Fawns are so awkward and precious. Their ears are sideways or flat because the fawns have not had much chance, while in the womb, to hold them straight up, especially when there is another fawn in there taking up even more of the space in the womb.
This precious shot was taken just as Mom was nudging the other twin to get going. "Hey! It's time to get moving right now.
The 7/8" edge of this painting is painted as a Gallery Edge, painted to match and compliment the picture. It may also be framed in a Silhouette Frame that will show off the Gallery Painted Edge. I like to paint the edges as part of the picture to give you a choice of how to hang it. When you are coming into a room or down a hall the effect is to give a color visual of something to see that is different or unexpected, rather than the regular edge of wood frame.
It may be framed or hung on the wall as is.
