"Polar Bear" 2015 Acrylic on canvas 24 x 24 inches

"Polar bear is one of my most recent works of art. The painting was inspired by my wife's love of bears.  Polar bears are specially adapted to the polar marine environment in which they live. Adaptations include: white coloration for camouflage; water repellent guard hairs, dense underfur, and black skin for absorbing warmth; small “suction cups” on the soles of their feet for traction on slippery ice; teeth specialized for a carnivorous rather than omnivorous diet; and the ability to store large amounts of fat when food is available and then use it later when food is unavailable. Polar bears’ primary food source are ringed seals but they also hunt bearded seals, walrus, and beluga whales, and will scavenge on beached carrion such as whale, walrus and seal carcasses found along the coast.

Polar Bear is on a quality gallery wrapped canvas. All sides are painted with no staples showing. The painting is ready to be hung and can be displayed with or without a frame. It can be purchased through Amazon by clicking this link.
