Grizzly bears are much maligned and feared. These are the bears of Katmai National Park n Alaska. Bears in this area are known to pay no attention to photographers who come to see them . They go about doing their business. The title says it all. The intuitive use of a palette knife gives the energy and movement in water made by the bears and a brush to follow the green pattern in the underpainting to create the bubbles and splashes in a suggestive way. The result is a painting that seems come to life through technique rather than depiction.
