Artist Reply: Thanks, Joanie! The actual title is Blacktail Family". Hot off the auld easle in time for the county fair.
"Mommie Deerest" and "Number One Son" had been hanging out in my yard since last summer. Came winter and they started stripping blackberry whips to stay alive and scarfing up the seed we put out for the wild birds, so I started feeding 'em stale bread. No. 1 Son was finally weaned and disappeared. Mommie dropped a new fawn this spring. I only saw it with her once, but she comes back occasionally for bird seed. (i.e. sunflower seeds.)
