With this piece, I was drawn to the richness of color and the color harmony that resides
with a black bear against a backdrop of foliage heading into the fall season. I usually
prefer to present the black bear in a sort of whimsical manner as that is how I feel about
them. They're simply, lovably goofy. But don't get me wrong, I don't usually have the
urge to run up to one and hug it.
