Polar Bear Swimming in the Northern Lights. Polar Bear Dreams Series.

About This Piece

This contemporary animal nature painting features this great ursine animal of the north, the polar bear, swimming in the night sky among the aurora borealis, the arctic northern lights. This is more than a wildlife painting, or polar bear portrait. It is meant as a dreamy, beautiful, dramatic contemporary oil painting tribute to these mighty northern polar bears threatened by climate change. His great paws and thick fur moving as if in water across the night sky among the stars, the beautiful blues in gorgeous contrast to the yelowish tinge of the thick polar bear fur.

Artist Statement

No matter the subject matter, I strive to reveal the spirit and story within. My appreciation for solitude, that is not lonely, is often a theme to my work. A positive thinking artist, my work often reflects this in its beautiful colour, the viewpoint of looking up, and sometimes a touch of humor. The impact of scale on a work intrigues me. My cat painting portraits, for example, are 4 - 6 feet tall. My portraits of people are often large scale, or just the opposite - 6" x 6" small - the little faces, usually of children, equally full of character. I love the act of oil painting, the blending, glow and beautiful colours of the oil paints.
