Oil on Canvas

Painted from a photograph by Cindy Nowotny

This was an interesting project. The photograph by Cindy Nowotny was taken at a zoo in Montana. I put the forest and the road in the distance where the back wall of the enclosure had been in the photograph. If I had followed through with my original idea the grizzly would be about four times the size it is in the painting, but a smaller bear gives greater depth perception.  have spent many hours trying to figure out how to make the picture interesting in a way that will keep the viewer from being stuck in one part of the painting. I keep telling myself I set him free.
