Alaskan Brown Bear – Lake Clark National Park, Alaska
This is my latest creation in a series I refer to as “Photographic Reality, with A Touch of Impressionism.”
It began as a photograph that I made in Alaska’s Lake Clark National Park. Everywhere we went during our week-long visit back in 2011, this sow and her twin cubs would show up. It was almost as if she was proud of her newborns and wanted to show them off to everyone.
Working on it for hours in several digital editing programs, I was finally satisfied and this image is the result. What I’ve attempted to do is recreate the feelings and emotions I felt in my spirit as I looked through my camera’s viewfinder into her eyes. In this case, she was enjoying the moment in our presence as one of her cubs stood sentinel, searching for any sign of danger. Fortunately, she found none.
Lori and I will be displaying my newest creations, including the image featured above, at the upcoming 38th Annual Colorado Indian Market & Southwest Art Fest held in Denver, Colorado. It will be held at the Denver Mart, located at the corner of I25 and 58th Avenue, just 10 minutes north of Downtown Denver. The complex is recently updated and surrounded by acres of parking. We’ll be in booth 226.
3 Day Weekend! January 18, 19, 20th!
Hours: Friday 1-7PM, Saturday 10AM-7PM, Sunday 10AM-5PM
