This is a ravine on the north side of Calgary. My grandson has recently bought a house on this ravine and it is essentially
his backyard. There are frequently deer and coyotes and even occasionally Bears follow the ravine in from the foothills.
I would like to thank  :thankyou:, in advance, anyone who takes the time to comment or advise, because I really learn from them.

Alan, you are getting better at this all the time!   :yippee: :clap: :clap:

The lighted sky, the light shining on the trees and the white building, AWESOME!

I love the colors and the animals look so natural!

As soon as I looked at the painting, the Deer grabbed my attention! Even though they are small, they stand out. Even the spots stand out.
Your Grandson is very lucky to live near such a beautiful free spirited place Alan. He's even luckier to have a Granddad that creates a painting!
Well done  :clap: :clap:

Alan,  I really like this one!  The sky really fits with the rest of the painting.  Seems to reflect the field.. Beautiful!
