Brother Bear. A black bear. They are not necessarily black but also shades of brown. Much good luck to wear their totem. The symbol of the sun..in the background… is very important to hunters. They never hunted in the rain, so sun was very important. We have a lot of black bears here on my mountain. They wander around at will and they are formidable. Not big like grizzlies, but not small either. Whatever they want…they can have.

  1. A beautiful and warm painting, like a slow summers day.
    The bears you paint seem good-hearted.
    I find it amazing that you live so close to them.

    • It’s pretty wild here. I like it that way. We have tons of coyotes, bald eagles, hawks, deer, black bears and panthers….and all the smaller animals. I feel really fortunate to live here. It is a well kept secret since I live about 70 miles or so east of Los Angeles and most people don’t know this exists. And they have little idea that it snows many feet in the winter. In southern California no less. ♥ gretchen
