In the caves of Europe, ancient paintings have been found that depict the animals of that time. Many of those paintings include a “twisted perspective” in which the undersides of the feet are shown. In a single image, those artists of old accurately showed what the animals looked like and the tracks they would leave, producing the earliest nature guides.
In a similar abstract style, this painting depicts a current North American animal, the Mule Deer (Odocoileus hemionus), with its feet twisted upward to show its tracks. I also included some realistic full-size tracks, which are based on my plaster casts from the actual local animals here in southern California. (see also my YouTube channel video youtu.be/I16PPjydSOE)This work is an original acrylic painting that I designed and hand painted on a 12 inch by 24 inch ceramic tile. The design is based on my many years of studying our native animals and their tracks. Like the handprints found in European caves, I signed this artwork with my “handprint,” which includes my initials RCM.
Good luck to You in everything what You will try to realize , create and make !
