With Churchill Wild (www.churchillwild.com) and Webber's Lodges (www.webberslodges.com) I have been able to experience being in the presence of wild polar bears. Unlike some of the big machine buggy tours in Churchill, this is true wilderness. On the ground, breathing the same air, and watching polar bears act naturally in their environment.
A couple years ago, three of us spent 6 hours with 2 polar bears just outside Seal River Lodge. They had feasted on a beluga whale and were stuffed and contented. Since it is that time of year again, I wanted to paint a piece inspired from that encounter.
