Grizzly Bear portrait and painting demonstration


Too Close and Very Afraid ~ 16″ x 20″ oil on canvas
$1200.00

It’s bear season once again! They’ll soon be lumbering down the mountain from their chilly dens to eat the newly blossoming skunk cabbage that is finally starting to bloom. I have yet to see one awake this year, but the sunshine and the promise of a beautiful summer filled with our exotic wildlife inspired me to paint this guy. Here’s your chance to have your very own “too close for comfort” encounter with one of the world’s most impressive creatures!

After a tumultuous past as a goat milker, laundress, fine art major, waitress and restaurant owner, I've now downscaled to running my own Cafe/Gallery in an effort to maintain a social life and make a few bucks. I live a ridiculously idyllic existence in a fairytale village called Bella Coola on the West Coast of British Columbia with my charming musician husband, two amazingly creative children, and a dog whose favourite past time is eating rotten dead fish and rolling in poo. In my not so spare time I love to invent healthy whole food recipes, write YA fiction, play guitar, or curl up in my favourite chair with a great book and a gigantic mug of strong black coffee, all while daydreaming of living in Ireland...

  1. Beautiful! When I moved to Idaho, the one thing I was afraid of was bears! People would point out that we have alligators in Texas. But alligators you can run from! …I would not want to see this guy behind me!
