May 24, Balanced Bear

I painted this fella while sitting at Art-A-Whirl this weekend, and it was purchased before I could even take it home! My friend Jemiah sent me the image after seeing the other Balance painting I'd finished~  there's something about the incongruity of a very large, rather heavy, massive beast perched on the tip of a perceptively smaller and more delicate dead branch that just makes my heart soar with optimism.  Such trust!  Such faith!  And that little smile on that really big head, nostrils wide open to scent whatever is coming in on the breeze~  that just looks intoxicating.  What a happy bear!

6x6 acrylic on wood, SOLD!
