Arctic Ice - Polar Bear
(scroll down for description)
24" x 48", acrylic on canvas, 1995

The arctic landscape is powerful, majestic and seemingly endless. There is enough life to support one of the world's most gigantic carnivores, the polar bear. His realm is the water, mostly in the form of pack ice. But his massive paws can paddle hundreds of miles from land.
In the glorious light of Davis Strait, between Greenland and Canada's Baffin Island, the colours shift and bounce. It is as if the icebergs, pack ice, open sea and snowy mountains are playing with the clouds to flaunt the possibilities of the spectrum.
