Eric sometimes likes to refer to things he likes as “my baby” or “my babies.” He would always talk about his horrific ’91 Camry as if it was the most amazing car anyone could ever hope to have.
It died the other day. I had a hard time understanding his attachment to that car, but I totally get why he fell in love with this fawn when he found it on his parent’s driveway.
Holding this fawn was one of the coolest things I’ve ever experienced. Here is a little video of Eric with his baby. If you don’t know him, trust me when I say he’s TOTALLY smitten!
Don’t worry, the fawn was promptly returned to his mother.
Here are two closeups of my progress on the painting. The first is the painting as it looked when I was working on it in March. The second is the most recent photo of it.
Have any of you ever found or owned an animal that had you at “hello?” Do tell!
