In Progress

A few photos of my current painting in progress.  I had started this painting just a few days before Grizzly bears were removed from Endangered Species status.  Sad, but fitting.  700 bears in the wild is not a high number, especially if there is a major disaster, and  to ensure no genetic mutations occur due to inbreeding.  Our priorities need to change.  So it’s fitting that I happened to choose a Grizzly as my subject for this piece.  We are steadily creating desert landscapes full of our garbage- in this case, a junkyard of cars- as we clear out the natural habitat of so many species, many endangered.  I used flowers growing out of the bear’s back as a reference to our connection to nature; this lone patch of flowers mirroring the small, shrinking natural landscape.
