The whitetail buck is perhaps the most beautiful and regal big game animal of North America, and one of my favortie subjects to paint! I wanted the viewer to see this trophy buck up close and personal. But I also wanted to showcase its harmony with its woodland habitat. A mature buck is wise, and can almost “disappear” into the the forest. This buck is in the rut, and on the move. He will only give you a glance, cock his ears, then soon move on. It may be the only time you will ever see him. – Abraham Hunter
