This began as a very abstract painting, but as the fawn was painted into the scene, the background suddenly became a meadow. Like all newborns, there is a need for frequent periods of sleep. It is at these most vulnerable times that they rely on their spotted camouflage to evade detection. I wanted to portray the fragility and innocence of these early days of life.
