I know a brother and sister who like to go bear hunting with their dad. They just bought a house together and for a house warming present, I made them each a small bear painting, baring their names. I wonder why they want to hunt and kill bears? Probably the same reason I painted them… for the fun of it.


A narrative of protecting your kill developed while painting this landscape.
