Meet The Blue Prince, a 30" x 40" polar bear oil painting. Why have I titled this painting, The Blue Prince?
Well, aside from the fact this mighty polar bear painting is created in dramatic shades of blue, this is a portrait of arctic royalty. Polar bears, highly intelligent, and the largest and mightiest arctic predator, are often referred to as the Lords of the North.
The Blue Prince is the Spanish, French and Italian reference for Prince Charming. And this is one charming bear, despite his ferociousness. He's intelligent, handsome, strong, and playful, too.
The colour blue carries significance as well. The dark blue symbolizes intelligence, dignity, trust, and authority. Light blue represents spirituality.
Oh, and did you know that blue is the no. 1 favourite color in the world? How appropriate for this well loved polar animal. (Click here for other polar bear paintings)
In Korea, blue is the colour of mourning, and in North America, if sad, we have "the blues". I would most certainly mourn and have a serious case of the blues if there is severe decline of this magnicent species.
Now the real question is, is The Blue Prince portrayed in this dramatic painting simply majestically posing for our enjoyment, or does he sense something behind him, out there in the inky blue darkness.
In artwork, a face looking to the right is looking to the future, and looking to the left is towards the past. This bear is standing solidly in place - his past and future fates at a crossroads - what will be the fate of our furry hero?
Hopefully, the future ahead for this bear is not to be simply the stuff or folklore, (you know, once upon a time there was this great white bear) and that the polar landscape, polar animals, and the rest of the planet will have a fairy tale ending.
