Collection: Walking Bear

Walking bear 2011
original 11" x 14" acrylic painting on canvas
* Sold *
"Walking bear" was inspired by the many bear observations and encounters that come with living in Alaska and exploring the wilderness. Fortunately, I have never had any close encounters with a wild bear as I'm usually at some sort of safe vantage point to observe but not interfere with the bears activities. My focus for this composition was on the unique physical characteristics and visual elements of the charismatic grizzly bear. It's a simple composition made slightly more sophisticated with the playful colors and shapes within the the body of the bear. The vegetation that the bear is walking through was an afterthought and much more developed when I first laid into the painting. I took some of the cream background color and painted back over parts of the vegetation creating the interesting and stylized shapes that represent vegetation. ~ Sue Dranchak
