Bear & Salmon

painting of bear with forest ecosystem

Size: 24x36 Stretched Canvas, sand and salt water

Look carefully at this work and at the story it tells. On each side we have the clear cutting of our forests, along the bottom fast flowing clean water with logs, boulders and yellow sand. The sky is blue with puffy white clouds full of promise.

Traces of salmon DNA have been found in trees on the tops of mountains. This speaks of the full circle of life and how we are all connected. The bear feeds on the salmon and as it travels it contributes to the growth and well being of all that grow on our mountains.
