Somewhere Waiting is a large semi abstract square oil painting of a mythical landscape with deer (40x40x1.5 inches). The stag and three female deer, stand at the centre of the painting and there is a hint of a waterfall below them and trees and mountains above and around them. The deer are small and well defined though slightly nebulous at the same time. I often use this same little posse of deer in my paintings as they seem perfect together. Below the deer, if you look closely, you can see the outline of a much bigger stag who was painted over and has now become part of the waterfall. The painting began with a simple desire to use the colours in it which include magenta, rose, purple, lilac, pale blue, white and golden yellow. The painting worked well as an abstract landscape but I feel it is better with the little deer adding some focus to it. Most of my paintings have a story or memory attached. This one is about the spiritual nature of deer and the idea that maybe they can move between worlds and can act as guides. This idea is common to many cultures and I like it. This painting is on 3D, deep edge canvas, edges white, ready to hang, frame not needed.
