Piece description from the artist
Having been to the Smoky Mountain National Park many times, I have been fortunate to frequently observe black bears in their natural environment. This painting is actually a composite of several photographs I have taken over the years. The painting is meant to show the large male black bear as it would appear in its natural environment.
Although Robert has painted throughout his life, it is only recently that he decided to become a full time professional landscape and wildlife artist. Bob is basically a self-taught artist and has developed his talent and style of painting over many years.
Growing up Bob always enjoyed the outdoors. As a young boy he spent much of his time in the countryside observing and learning about nature and wildlife. It’s those experiences that have given him a deep respect and sincere appreciation of nature and the outdoors. This is a significant part of what drives him to try to creatively express himself with paint on canvas.
Over the last several years he has been able to travel extensively throughout North America while visiting many of the national parks within the United States and Canada. The photos that he has taken on these trips have provided him with a great deal of subject matter and inspiration for his paintings. In his artwork he simply tries to capture a time, a place, a feeling or a particular subject that will stimulate the feelings and emotions of fellow nature lovers.
