New Polar Bear Cub Painting
The polar bear cub painting above, is the second study for my new series of polar bear oil paintings, commenting on sea ice loss and its effect on polar bears. To see the first polar bear cub painting, launched on International Polar Bear Day, click here.
Sinking or Swimming?
The working title of this polar bear cub series of oil paintings is Sink or Swim.
As mentioned in my last blog post, mother polar bears, polar bear cub(s) atop their back, must swim greater distances in search of land and food due to the vanishing sea ice. These trips are not always successful. Polar bear cubs just simply vanish along the route, and sometimes the mothers do, too.
The bear cub above, does not seem distressed. Like with the experiment Schrodinger's Cat, it is up to the viewer's thoughts about what this bear's state of being is.
