Sometimes it takes a while to finish a painting. The Bears painting is finally done on front, but the sides and frame still need to be finished. I am thinking about finishing the edges of all my larger paintings in a decorative way so that they don't need a frame, unless you need to have one.
These bears were the final candidates to live in this meadow. I played around with a coyote, elk, herd of elk, deer, and a hunter, but the Bears won out.
I have to get moving on more. I have a 2 person show in December, and I figure that if I need to sell 2 paintings a month or more to pay bills, then I need to paint 4 and market to 100 people.
These bears being done is a load off my mind though. Now, I can move on.
