Autumn Equinox, Texas Style – A Square Foot of Fauna Series The Autumn Equinox is a time of harvest, the moment when the Sun appears to cross the celestial equator, heading southward. It is a time that reminds me of home and country and earth. Growing up in Texas, the Longhorn is a formidable statuesque symbol of majesty and grandeur. There is something messy and transitional about moving from one season to the next. Much of my style of painting is about creating beauty out of seeming chaotic strokes. This movement of “non-linear” lines may also have been birthed from many years of lying face toward the sky on a trampoline, seeing the ever-evolving art in the clouds.

VELVET from A Square Foot of Fauna Series The male Whitetail Deer lose their antlers after rut which is in the Winter. When their horns start growing back, they are all velvet. Interesting note that during this time when their antlers are small and soft, the female deer pretty much rule the land. It’s hilarious to watch a female deer stand her ground where she wants to eat. If a male tries to move her, she rares back on her back legs and paws him away. The females have the power January through June and the males have the power July to December. 50/50 Interesting, huh?
