This painting was for a really special friend. I’ll not share the story behind it here, since I don’t have her permission BUT I will say I was honored to have been asked to make this one. This is a triptych, you can see the faint lines where I ended up cutting it into three paintings, each portrait orientation. I looked at some real photos of bears and really enjoyed the research for this one. We live in an area where we see black bears and I always want to catch just a glimpse of another. If only I could study them when I do see them.
