POLAR CROSSING, 23” x 34”, 1991
Polar bears are strong tireless swimmers. Although they are born on land they spend most of their time at sea. They are as comfortable in the frigid Arctic water as they are on land and ice. They often swim great distances from the nearest land or ice surface. What I love about this painting is the way the afternoon light plays and reflects on the water surface. The painting also points out the massive head of the male bear compared to the female. The males weigh between 800-1,500 pounds, while the females weigh about half of that. The Inuit refer to polar bears as ‘nanook’. Thie painting was released as a limited edition print.
