Spotted - Mule Deer Fawn
Giclee On Canvas
NOTES: Spotted - Mule Deer Fawn As a kid I enjoyed very much the Disney movie Bambi. All those little creature like skunks, chipmunks and raccoons were all new to me. The way Disney made them almost human was remarkable. Later as a professional artist traveling the National Parks of North America, I was excited to finally meet all those strange animals, although the deer in Europe look quite similar to the deer families in the new world. These ruminants mostly have spotted babies. Itâ€™s an element of camouflage, combined with a lack of scent, it helps them to survive and avoid predators. The character in the movie was a white-tailed deer. The first field trips on this continent I had to learn the difference between the new world deer species. Amazing were the big ears of the mule deer, which is less common than the white-tailed deer. Their features are quite different and it took me a while before I could recognize them. Now they are familiar to me as sparrows.
Grass eaters were a big source of proteins for predators like wolf, coyote and cougar. Since those have disappeared in many states, deer can become a plague. New predators are born: the human hunters, but can they restore the balance and stop the overpopulation? .

Carl Benders bio
love for all creatures, from the friendly to the ferocious, is evident in his masterful attention to their every detail; nothing is overlooked. With his imagination, Brenders is able to get close enough to wild animals so that he can almost feel their textures. Consequently, his work has a tactile reality, giving us the sense of having been where even the most intrepid of field guides have not ventured. Of this ability Brenders says, "A painter is a privileged being, because in his imagination he can come very close to the animals he paints. In reality, one can never come this close to wild animals, particularly if they are predators. Brenders' insistence on anatomical perfection in his paintings stems from his philosophy that nature, itself, is perfection: "That is why I paint the way I do with so much detail and so much realism " I want to capture that perfection," he says.
