The source of this little painting came from my visit to Paris. It rained most everyday at some point and, I was delighted every time. I totally love painting rainy urban landscapes!

Living in the wonderful state of Colorado I have had the privilege of experiencing so much of its wildlife. On one of my adventures to the Rockies I came upon a family of Black bears, a mother and her two cubs. When I caught my breath and got my faculties together I snapped a few pictures and got out of there as fast a possible. When I had returned to my car and looked at my pictures I was so excited to see that I had taken some great ones. The painting above is inspired from those pictures.

I just enjoy painting animals of all kinds, wild or domesticated doesn't matter to me. There is something freeing about tackling this subject matter because I have an inherent emotional attachment to these models. I was given the picture of this lovely pachyderm by a wonderful client who took it while on safari in Africa.
