White-tailed Deer, 24" x 36" Oil on Canvas
Any hunter who has watched a white-tailed buck make a scrape in the woods knows just how incredible the sight is. They're athletic, powerful, and focused. I watched a similar scene unfold from a deer stand one November evening in Illinois and instantly knew that I wanted to paint a large buck making a scrape. "Scrape Line" shows off this buck's agility as he hits a licking branch overhead on a cool early November day during the rut.
