A New Year's Pudu


I made this little painting as a Christmas present for my friend who shares my love of Pudus - the smallest deer in the world. The black background was inspired by a show of seventeenth century Dutch paintings I saw in Vancouver last month. This painting looks dramatic but is only 5x7 inches.


I don't know who took this picture but the Woodland Park Zoo in Seattle had a baby pudu a while ago so maybe this picture is from there. Even if you don't like cute animals (really?) this baby has to make you say "aaawww". The mother is less than two feet tall.

  6. Jean - Your baby wee pudu fawn is so precious, it makes me wonder if it is ever hard to give these paintings away... Never saw that pair at the Zoo, are they still there? They would be worth the trip, if so! That last comment, I hope it's randomly generated spam - how rude, if not! Your creativity and originality have never been lacking.
