New Polar Bear Painting Grace

Polar bear painting by Canadian artist Christine Montague

New Painting in A Celebration of Polar Bears Series

Polar bear portrait oil painting "Saimarnerk" (the Inuit word for grace.) The largest predator in the Canadian north, this big bear moves with grace and ease across the frozen land. A group of polar bears is known as a celebration, and Saimarnek, or Grace is the first painting in my "A Celebration of Polar Bears" series of 6" x 12" oil paintings depiciting these magnificent arctic animals. Inspired by my recent journey to Cape Dorset, a remote Arctic community, most of these bears will have Inuit names. To see more polar bear paintings visit
