Exquisite! The first painting puts me in mind of a dream I had about 13 years ago—used to dream of Deer a couple times a week. In it I went outside and found a huge deer with an arrow in her thigh. I felt bad for her but she wasn’t dying. Then she became a little girl with an arrow through her leg. I told her I was so sorry she’d gotten hurt. She said nothing, just walked up the stairs into the house with her mother. I'm relaying this dream only as an example of the overlapping of myth, dreams, and art.
