"My Griz" 2011
Oil on 5x6" panel
10% donation to Sequoia Humane Society
I took this photo, the poor Griz is a stuffed trophy bear at a sporting goods store in Sacramento, anyhow, this bear was so amazing to see, so very impressive. I like to work from my own photos but getting close to a Griz is probably not going to happen, so I got a couple good shots to work from.
