The Buck Stops Here

The Buck Stops Here

R. Krause, Artist, 1980s

18" X 24", Acryllic on Artist Board, Framed

Animal Tribute Art

Deer are many things to many people.  Bambi comes to mind.  But deer have issues.  And yes, even deer are needy.  They like to be included in the fun.  They have feelings. It is why men are drawn to them. Its why men draw and paint them.  If its not the saucy flick of their tails, what then is it? In this work artist Krause captures the enigmatic smile, and come hither flirtatiousness that deer naturally have.  It's not an in your face smile, but something more mysterious, on par with the subtle wisp of the Mona Lisa.  The smile encourages you, as if to say "Go ahead.  Make my day," without understanding the ramifications of it eagerness to please you.

Stylistically Krause's painting boldly incorporates mountains which act as a collar to frame the buck.  Its wood-grained ears - one of them spud like in shape -  compliment its double chin.  Oh, deer, indeed.
