Image Statement: Father, Son and Holy Ghost feature a few of the deer that graze on my riverfront property. The reference to Catholicism is intentional; the gorgeous tapestries I stared at while in church during my childhood helped pass boring times there, and provided rich fantasies that whisked me away. In addition, as a vegetarian, I seek to protect animals from human predation. We call our farm land "The Safe Zone" and these deer are protected here.
