"King of the Forest" is original watercolour painting of a bear with forest inside combined in a unique double exposure style, on 20x24" Archival Canvas. A bear, especially grizzly bear, can become aggressive and dangerous when approached by a hiker. The only way to get this close, literally face-to-face, to a bear in a natural setting was in my imagination. I feel very fortunate to be able to do this, and I think that this is a big advantage that artists have; we can imagine a scene with such reality that the impossible becomes possible. I wanted to show wildness of the bear, but also the love and protection of the forest that he calls home.
In “Enchanted Animals” collection I focus on spirits and inner world of each animal. We are similar to all living creatures with our own background and stories. Have you ever thought about what breathtaking views open up before eyes of the bears walking through the forest? This painting is a reminder to go deep within our own souls and see beauty all around us.
20"x24" Archival Canvas comes framed in a black wooden exhibition frame. This simple frame looks great in almost any décor. Turnbuckles and D-rings are pre-attached to make it easy for you to hang the frame on a wall.
