Ursus Maritimus

Ursus Maritimus
Original Oil
9.5" x 17.75"
After painting grass..... and more grass......, it was time for a water piece. I almost enjoy painting water as much as whatever subject I place in it. There are so many moods to water from streams, to waterfalls, ponds, lakes, and oceans. The slighest variation in atmosphere can drastically change the color and feel of water.

And the title? The scientific name for the polar bear, the Sea Bear.
