A solitary doe stands alert in a snowy landscape dotted with sagebrush and against a sky that shimmers with a luminous golden hue, reminiscent of metal leafing. This adds an air of majesty and preciousness to the scene, complicating the title’s reference to the sagebrush. The use of gold leafing invites the viewer to consider whether the “sage” of the piece is the animal rather than the foliage, elevated by the radiant sky and set apart from its mundane surroundings.
