On the drive between Baker City and Boise, it is common to see deer.  The exact bush I initially sketched for this painting didn’t have a deer under it the day I sketched it… But I imagine it probably has had a fawn lying just as this painting!   There was a black bird on the bush when I first saw it… But I prefer the colors of the Oriole.
