24×30, oil on GC, $1575 CAD
This painting just happened. It was supposed to be very different, but during the process some wonderful things accidentally happened on the canvas, that just could not be overlooked. It is glazed many times with Ultramarine Blue, giving it a deep glow that cannot be captured in a photograph. It was painted in the dark of a cold winter. At the time, I had been frequently awake in the middle of the night myself, preparing for an exhibit, and this bear conveys that solitary, awake in the middle of the night feeling.
