Folks in Sisters are used to seeing deer roaming around town, even crossing Cascade Avenue in a crosswalk. Now there's one jumping across the moon.

A work crew last week installed Dennis McGregor's mural of "Buck" leaping across the face of a full moon and over the Three Sisters mountains on the face of The Gallimaufry on the corner of Cascade Avenue and Elm Street.

Building owner Mike Reed wanted to do a mural with McGregor, and put his niece Ashley Okura in touch with the Sisters artists.

"Dennis and myself collaborated on the content of the image," Okura told The Nugget. "The artistry was all Dennis, of course."

McGregor said that as they kicked around ideas, the notion of the skyline and the moon seemed natural.

"I felt like, since it was high up in the air, that the image should be high up as well," McGregor said.

McGregor observed that the deer will pick up a theme along with the selected art for the Barclay/Highway 20 roundabout.

"I think it's kind of cool that Danae Miller's roundabout art features deer, too," he said. "So we've got a theme going."

If the deer in the mural looks familiar, he should.

"The same deer that posed for the Sisters Folk Festival poster a few years ago is the one I used for this one," McGregor said. "Same guy."
