Kathleen V. Butts Widlife Artist
On one of our many wonderful trips into the Rockies, we found ourselves in a  bad snow storm and could see animals moving out of the depth of the falling snow.  We came to this river's edge and were blessed once again to see this beautiful mule deer.  I have completed many paintings from that trip. An elk painting "Down From The High Country" was the cover of an Oregon Wildlife Federation Calendar. "Winter Crossing" is  11"X14'',  oil on linen.

''MAGPIE" Sold

Kathleen V. Butts Wildlife Artist
This painting was a commission for another artist. I had not done birds since early in my career, I found Magpies to be very flighty birds, but very beautiful.
