I am back to painting a few small paintings. I really enjoy painting large supports, and when I paint a big one it is a bit hard to go back to a small daily painting. This pomegranate painting is 8x10".

Forests of BiH are full of animals, deer, lynx, bears, wolves etc.
We read a lot while growing up in Bosnia. We had so many interesting books by native speakers, many of them involving magical creatures, or worlds in which animals were equal to people and had powers to speak to humans.
One of those books is a book by Vladimir Nazor called White Deer.
Here is a detail from the antler - i used coarse medium to make the antler texture this time. Every painting is a new playground for me. I love to try new things, new mediums to create different textures.
