We quite often enjoyed seeing wildlife while we spent long hours outdoors. On one trip, we decided to go to Waterton Lakes National Park, in Alberta, located on the joint U.S.-Canadian border. We chose to paint the lake and mountains, and set up on a grassy area close to the water’s edge. After Rebecca finished a watercolour, she took it off the easel and leaned it against a tree about twenty feet behind her. I glanced back awhile later only to see a deer munching on Rebecca’s watercolour. “The deer is eating your painting!” I shouted. She ran to rescue the work but it was too late. Expensive acid free watercolour paper is obviously a tasty treat for deer.
