Animals, A peaceful spring evening, Sirkka Jalava

I have 3-4 deeres living here near by me.  They come every day and will see in my garden, if there is something to eat for them. Often there is and they find it. (I do not give them any food.)
This deere is satisfied with the life just now. she is enjoying the peaceful, warm spring time evening befor the night. And I was so surprised when I looked at her, because she is ruminating! I had never thougt of it! 
She does do pricesly the same as a cow does.

Sketched on a brown shoping paper with dry pastels.

  2. You are so fortunate to have country living. I would love to live in a nature center preserve. I post pictures (on my daily blog) of my walks every day and of my visits to wetlands and nature centers. . . and then draw/paint them and put them on the art blog. I would love to be part of your blog. Pastels are my fave. .. you picture is wondrous. Thank you. Blessings, Janet PPF
