Bear & Blossoms
Black bear, bright blossoms. Ponderous hulk, delicate flowers. “Bear and Blossoms,” Stephen Lyman’s study of contrasts, plays one against the other as the wildlife subject of the painting takes a back seat to the wildflowers and grasses. “Black bears move silently for being such large animals,” noted Lyman.
“In my wilderness journeys I have often been surprised by their silent approach, either by accidental meeting or by a deliberate visit drawn by the aroma of my supper.” This attractive Stephen Lyman jewel will find a perfect place in the homes of both the Lyman collector and a new breed of wildlife enthusiasts.
