Artwork Description

“I have had the good fortune of seeing many grizzlies in the wild (one was from a precarious distance of three feet). They are by far our greatest symbol of the wild, unspoiled wilderness. Having been eliminated from most of their habitat in the continental U.S. (and now protected) they can still be found in and around Yellowstone and Glacier National Parks. The idea for “Grizzly Encounter” came from hiking in grizzly country and always keeping a keen eye on the lookout. The subjects were arranged as if two ravens taking flight have just startled you. Unfortunately upon close inspection, you realized they were on a mule deer kill with the owner of the carcass rising up and clearly stating he is not willing to share.”
