New Painting Inerkonartok the Polar bear

Here's the Latest Painting in A Celebration of Polar Bears

Canadian visual artist Christine Montague portraits and polar bears in oil on canvas

New Polar Bear Painting

Fresh off the easel and available is Inerkartoka 6" x 12" portrait oil painting on canvas of a polar bear sitting in the snow.  "Inerkartok" means pretty in Inuktitut, the language of the Inuit in Nunavut, an arctic territory in Canada.  The polar bear in this oil painting is a pretty one, and I would like to believe she is sitting pretty, too.  Sitting pretty is an old idiom that means in a good place or a in a good situation. However, this recent Polar Bears International video on the retreating sea ice and the 40% decline in the polar bear population is far from pretty.

Inerkartok is just one of the paintings in my series A Celebration of Polar Bears.
