A haunting image of a black bear painted in liquid charcoal over a watercolor wash

See full description & specifications

I spend an inordinate number of hours in the forests of the Smoky Mountains and live in a home on the side of a mountain in East Tennessee. Black bears are all around and I never get tired of seeing them. While I'm not afraid of them, I always treat them with respect and observe them from a distance.... whenever possible. Once I opened my car door to find one had crawled through an open window into the backseat!

It's always a special moment whenever I come upon a bear in the woods or along a stream. There's always that brief moment when the bear and I seem to become aware of each other at the same time. Even though I'm not fearful of bears, there is that instant of uncertainty; how will it react? what will it do?

My intention with this liquid charcoal over watercolor painting is to represent that short moment when I bear has become aware of my presence and I'm not quite sure of what will happen. As always they either go back about their business or quickly disappear into the thick understory of the forest. In fact, this painting is a better representation of a black bear than I can often capture with a camera in those fleeting seconds.
