DeLatenay, Gaston (1859-1940)
Relatively unknown printmaker working in France. (i suppose he painted a bit too)

Don't know much of the history of this painting other than that my parents bought it in New Orleans a decade or more ago, and it was always my favorite of the art that they purchased. After years of nagging they gave it to me and it now graces my living room wall over the fireplace.

Side note: While taking the photo this crazy urban buck jumped at me and I snagged him between my knees and broke his neck, so as not to destroy my painting or the photo. Note the look of surprise of capture mixed with the fear of imminent death in his eyes.

Thanks @mackle, make me miss @obeymaach. It's true, though, you do kinda look like him.

On the other hand, the painting looks awesome.

Is that the same buck @carynorton went on a date with last week and (presumably)had some hardcore sexytime with?

If so, and you killed him, @carynorton is going to be pissed...

Thank you friends. I'll have to now go back and look at all of @obeymaach's photos now in search of resemblance.
