Polar bears are currently threatened by the melting ice of he Arctic sea, the bears' habitat and hunting ground. A few years ago, I had the opportunity to visit Nunavut in the Canadian Arctic and fell in love with Inuit culture and art.

I have been developing a series of artwork to celebrate the North using pewter that I emboss free hand and acrylic gels and emulsions to translate the ice and snow.

This painting of a noble polar bear is on a specially prepared cradled panel; the pewter is top quality and contains no lead.
A beautiful statement piece! It is wired and ready to hang. The edges are painted white to continue the idea of ice and snow landscape on the sides of the painting.The artwork has been varnished to protect the pewter and the acrylic for years and years.

I can produce similar pieces with kayaks, inukshuks, polar bears much larger sizes such as 24" x 24". Please contact me if interested.

Best Wishes to all for the Holiday Season!
