Here is your typical Alaskan painter, mosquito netting rakishly folded away from the face, standing by the outhouse to complete a masterpiece. The sign on the outhouse says "Hippies use back door No Exceptions!" (outhouse humor.)

And here are her friends, doing their best to raise the beam of the new addition on the remote cabin.

And here is the mamma bear with one of her two cubs, visiting the area the next morning, just minutes after abovementioned artist returned from abovementioned outhouse!

Slightly out of focus because the photographer got a little excited. Also, bears move a lot. That's the cub nuzzling mom.

And here is the painting.

Oil on linen panel, 8" x 10"
