6 x 8 inch
oil on 1/8th inch gesso board

This is my first attempt at painting a bear. Last year when I was out running with my dogs in the bush I came face to face with a very large bear standing tall on his hind legs scoping out the area, though I was very nervous I was also filled with excitement. I definitely had the feeling of being one with nature.  Well luckily when I started running, the bear slowly lumbered into the bush the opposite way...and yes I know you are not supposed to run.  Anyway since then I have wanted to paint a bear, I found this lovely image on Pixabay and it reminded me of my bear encounter.
