Bears and more bears

8.25" X 13"
Original Oil

During our Noatak River trip we saw 14 or 15 grizzlies. My close encounter will be a story I tell for a long time. It wasn't long into our adventure that every place we stopped had bear tracks. The question was fresh???
This was a younger bear who watched us pass before ducking into the brush.

Sometimes I use a heavier hand when painting and give the piece lots of texture. This is one of those paintings. Rugged bear, lots of paint.
