Original Watercolor, 2019 (11” x 17”)
This adorable fawn is in a forest of trees, protected and concealed by their spirit of caretaking, and community. Golden leaves from aspen trees usher in heavenly light, like the joy of the future unfolding. Little Fawn is that little one you know. Your niece, your nephew, your child. You are the trees. So is your loving partner, and your loving father and mother, your sister, your brothers.
You band together to teach this little one the way. It takes a forest to care for this little one, as it learns to use its legs to wander, in search of sustenance. You will always be there for your little one, no matter what. You are their shelter, you are their protection and provider, as that is what God has called you to do; no matter what.
You are imperfect—your many moods, the trials of life, the storms that blow your leaves off; leaving you bare. That season has come and gone and will come again, but in this season, you are filled with golden light, radiating, warming, healing, growing. You'll always love your Little Fawn, no matter what.
