Midsummer. The rut is not yet upon this young stag and he grazes peaceably with other stags. He is focused on eating the sweet grass, feeling the sun on his back, alert to the warning cries of a robin or jay. Life is easy.
The first bold flakes of winter. The bear is fat and full. The salmon have spawned. The berries have lost their sweetness. He is ready for his den.
Deep in Winter, a cub is born on a cold, starry night. It will stay hidden and nurtured until Spring, safe.
I see you. I scent you. You do not matter.
Blinking into the light after a long hibernation. Springtime. Awake.
Alert, curious, gathering information. He sees you, but you haven’t noticed him. Coyote, the Trickster.
The sky is alive. It crackles and ripples. I seek my prey.
A polar bear sitting in the sunshine during the short arctic summer reminds us of those simple pleasures which are easily overlooked. At times, we simply need to press the pause button and emulate this bear.
Deep in the rain forests of British Columbia, lives the rare Kermode bear. The Kitasoo Xzi’xais call them Spirit Bears, created by Raven to remind the People of a time when the lush wilderness was covered with snow and ice. I loved painting this quiet scene of a Spirit Bear, caught in sunlight as he patiently fishes for salmon.
A survivor…playful, intelligent, and so beautiful. He appears to be sleeping soundly. Yet, the slightest sound or the hint of an unfamiliar scent will immediately pull him awake.
SLEEPING FOX 2
Head to tail fluff and fur. This is one of my favorites, perhaps because of the joy I felt while painting it. I was in that zone where I watched myself paint…delighting in the dance and the flow of paint and brush and paper.
One fox appears to morph from the other, filled with a protective nature and a watchful gaze. Harmonizing with the trusting sleep of its mate.
The fox is wary and focused. There are kits to feed.
I don’t like the term ‘sly fox.’ I don’t think of these animals as sly. I see them as intelligent, quick, curious, playful and with an uncanny ability to survive. If you have chickens, then this fox might be considered your enemy. If you have chickens, then this fox considers you an ally…you’ve just made its life very comfortable. Either way, he's waiting for you to leave.
