This beautiful mother grizzly is known as No. 399. She is known for raising her cubs near the Jackson Lake area in Jackson Hole. Some think she raises them there because she knows it is more populated and thus less likely to have male grizzlies frequenting the area. The males are dangerous to cubs. I had a great evening and then the following morning of watching and photographing this awesome family of bears.

Hi again, oh so neglected blog. Here are a few new paintings, two of which were inspired by our trip to Devon and Cornwall last summer. The sheep in the doorway belong to our neighbor down the road. We pass them often, and they like to stand in the doorway of the barn watching the passersby. But I think that about February, they are just looking out wondering when this darn cold weather is going to be done.
