Grizzly bears are much maligned and feared. These are the bears of Katmai National Park in Alaska. Bears in this area are known to pay no attention to photographers who come to see them. They go about doing their business. The title says it all. The intuitive use of a palette knife gives the energy and movement in water made by the bears and a brush to follow the green pattern in the underpainting to create the bubbles and splashes in a suggestive way. The painting seems to come to life through technique rather than depiction.

""My paintings, which are done in series, are an attempt to show beautiful locations whose natural integrity has either been altered by human intervention or is about to be. What is the cost of our imposition on the virginal status of these lands and the inhabitants therein?""
