Saint Grizz (Grizzly Bear)

Saint Grizz 10x10

Acrylic on canvas, 25″ x 25″

Lost in thought.

Do bears get lost in thought? I imagine they probably do, this one certainly seems to be. This painting is based on a reference photo taken by Jessica Weiller, which I found on

I was struck by the gentleness and intelligence in its eyes. I have no idea whether it’s a male or female, but I wonder if it’s a mama bear? Sure looks like a sweet maternal look to me, but then we know how fierce mama bears can be protecting their babies.
