    OWN AN ORIGINAL PIECE OF ART SIGNED BY TYRUS! You'll spend hours of contemplation enjoying the exquisite beauty and simplicity of this ethereal watercolor of two deer in a forest. In the two decades that Tyrus worked as a sought-after Christmas card designer, deer and other woodland animals found their way into his designs. Inspired by his work on Bambi, this landscape features Tyrus’s “less is more” compositional style and technical mastery.

    Original size is approximately 11.25" x 8.25". Original does not come framed, but for $350 extra we can have your piece framed using a museum-grade black or maple frame and 8-ply acid free matte, if you desire.
