Listener: mixed media painting

So I needed to jump start a new series of work using a ink transfer technique I've been doing quite a bit. I decided to do a play on words and illustrate a series of paintings based on words or phrases ending in "er"

white deer French music mixed media painting

The lone image of a white deer on a textural background of joss paper and French music gives an interesting impression. Animals are great listeners, they have good hearing, and that helps! But they also are very aware and alert to everything around them. It's interesting to reflect how hard it is for most of us to listen, really listen, and be mindful and aware of all the beautiful things around us everyday. Appreciate, have grace, be present.
