Bear Dream


In this unusual scene, a girl in a white nightgown sits on a rock, dipping her toe into a forest pond. A massive grizzly bear stands protectively just behind her and glares at you. Is this real or just a dream?

This was actually my 1000th artwork that I finished. I'd been wanting to do a new work with a bear, but just a bear alone staring at you in the forest just seemed a bit dull for my one thousandth work, so I put the girl in and made the image more dream like with and atmosphere to bump up the feeling of surrealism.

There's definitely a feeling of suspense despite her relaxed pose. And the bear's about the right size for a coastal grizzly ... nice!

Well if you're a vulnerable young lady lost in slumber, doubtless a mighty stout teddy bear is an outright necessity - especially if Freddy Kruger comes calling!
