The other morning I was waiting for the sun to come up so that I could take the pups to beach for our sunrise walk and I heard a racket outside. I walked out on the balcony and caught a glimpse of a herd of deer running through the marsh below me at high tide. What an incredibly beautiful sight. The deer on the island are such a wonderful part of the Fripp experience and I decided it was time I paint one of these cuties. This young buck came right up to see what was happening when I was sitting in the sand driveway playing ball with Zoe–just 6 feet from me. So amazing. Those eyes–he has sweetness written all over his face. xoxo
