    The white deer is a mythical spiritual being among native cultures of America, Asia, and Europe, and perhaps around the world. The painting is composed of layers of imagery, starting with maps of countries encased and collaged with clear acrylic medium on canvas. These maps are harmonized with acrylic color; in some places the rivers and roads of the separate maps are connected with lines to resemble veins under the skin. Over the maps, the pattern of the electromagnetic field or net that surrounds and protects the earth is painted in translucent colors; this E.M. net breaks up comets the size of small houses, making rain and clouds. It also carries signals and waves which are invisible to us, yet have a profound effect. The third translucent layer is from Peter Paul Rubens' "Horrors of War", which Pablo Picasso famously transposed for the painting "Guernica". This layer is glazed over with landscape colors; for example, the grass covers the dying poet in the lower right corner. Out of this field of non-visible phenomena, felt but not physically seen, the beloved ghost deer materializes, a mysterious symbol of elusive spiritual feeling for cultures around the world. "White Deer" is the "cameo" from a painting that was originally about 2 1/2 times its current width. The poetic inspiration for this painting is the song "Senor (Tales of Yankee Power)" by Bob Dylan. The white deer is a sacred symbol of the spiritual legacy of humanity, a profoundly powerful force for creative transformation.
