Prairie Does, wildlife art

"Prairie Does"
9 x 12 inches

This one is actually titled "Paines Prairie" but I changed the title on the prints, which I thought was funny (instead of prairie dogs).
This painting has a lot more than meets the eye because of the memories that go with it.  

I was at a Plein Air (out doors) workshop in Gainesville, Florida and these deer jumped out at different sides of the field.  They were very fast! I got a few good pictures and add-libbed the rest after I got home to work to my warm studio.  There was ice and frost on the palm trees that morning, and it only warmed up to about 40 degrees through the day! My little windbreaker jacket was not near enough to keep the cold wind out, but I stuck with it.
