Grizzly Dreams

Grizzly Dreams (Please click to see big…it looks WAY better:)

This idea came to me in about 30 seconds while I was reading a book about blogging..???
I have no idea where it came from. I don’t think that I was thinking about bears…It was more like, “A blog header should be 692 pix, by 190 pix…wow, that would be a cool painting!”  I did a lightning fast sketch so I wouldn’t forget, and kept reading my book. I didn’t actually get to the painting for a few days. 
This sort of depicts Bella Coola, where I live, but no particular scene. There’s a Nuxalk village, with totem poles, really high, snow-capped mountains, salmon in the rivers, and lots of grizzly bears.
So…the urge to paint from my imagination has passed…there’s no more imaginary scenes fighting to get out of my confusing little brain, so I’m back to my 100 paintings. Today I painted an interesting bottle/vase from life. It’s square, with a flower shaped opening…hmmm…maybe it is a vase…
And, I also painted a cow…to go with the farming/back to the land/natural living series of gallery paintings I’m working on. They will all be posted within the next few days.
These last two fun little illustrations will be posted as prints for sale on Etsy soon, as well, as soon as I get some more paper…
Talk to ya’ tomorrow.
Cheers!
