I'm very impressed with the degree of detail you were able to maintain and still present an image which is obviously a painting. The stag is quite handsome, and the yellow wildflowers at his feet are a wonderful accent to the image. Love the color palette and the great tones in the grass, the water, and the stag. A beautifully painted and well-presented piece, Carol.

Oh, so soft, Carol- love the painterly effect-"velvet" is the word, not just for the antlers. Delicious colors with the pretty yellow flowers and lovely blues in the river. Love the look-back pose too. A real wall-hanger! :)
