I am going to exhibit my paintings at the Gracious Goods Cafe in Edmonton. It is located in Belgravia neighborhood and is a lovely place to have tea, coffee and lunch. There will be poppies and sunflowers and meadows for one month! All the paintings will be for sale.

These are small, daily paintings (less than 1 sq ft), and my plan is to paint about 100 of them. They are also good practice for my large series of paintings with bears and wolves. It is likely that I will be painting this series until the end of the year. I am planning several trips to do research, visit wildlife sanctuaries and hopefully encounter some in the wilderness!
The Kermode bear (Ursus americanus kermodei, pron. kerr-MO-dee), also known as a "spirit bear" (particularly in British Columbia), is a subspecies of the North American Black Bearliving in the Central and North Coast regions of British Columbia,Canada. It is noted for about 1⁄10 of their population having white or cream-coloured coats. This colour morph is due torecessive genes common in the population. They are notalbinos and not any more related to polar bears or the "blonde"brown bears of Alaska's "ABC Islands" than other members of their species. Sometimes a black mother can have a white cub.
