DOE WITH FAWN: This lovely wall hanging has been stretched and framed in wood which has been painted to match the soft green wool used to suggest the woods environment. With a simplicity of design and composition, a peaceful scene has been created. Where Karen lives, 5 deer usually show up in the winter orchard. In the summer, the fawns are seen.
ENTANGLED, ENDANGERED LOON: 96" X 44" X 1/4". The loon in this very large felted wool wall hanging depicts the sad situation common to some wildlife that become entangled in whatever is floating in waters that can cause their death. Here, cast off monofilament which fishermen use on their spining rods, has caught around the loon's bill and has knotted around a webbed foot. In the sea, sometimes, whales can become entangled in rope that has come loose and is floating in the ocean dragging along buoys and mooring balls which may catch onto whale fins where the ropes cut into the flesh and cause wounds that may become infected and lead to the death of the whales so encumbered. When their movement is curtailed and they cannot dive deep, whales can die unless rescued by brave fishermen and other souls who stand by to help the endangered species. As a Regostered Maine Guide, Karen is aware of accidental damage to our wildlife which she feels needs protection from harm through education of the public.
ENTANGLED WHALE is also a very large felted wool wall hanging, available to be seen in our Gallery.
