CROSS TO BEAR

An A E London Original

Bear crossing signs popping up in bear territory, always a sign of loss of their pristine habitat. Development, ranching, industry crowds bears into smaller areas, much as the gold leaf crossing signs are doing to this grizzly on this canvas. Beautiful to our species, gold and its pursuit, is meaningless to a bear.

I've used a sky shading into deep shadow, partly to contrast with the bear and its gold edging, partly to indicate space, as in a sky deepening to stars.

Dimensions: 36" x 72" On canvas with gold leaf $4626. Original only.

With nothing between me and this 450 pound bear but a tiny electrified wire and his trainer throwing marshmallows in his mouth- all I could do was sketch furiously

Multiple sketches done at the Earthfire Institute in Idaho helped me to create this.
