Bear and Blossoms
"The massive bear, the center of attention and focus in most paintings, is relegated to the background. It blends into the dark forest and is upstaged by the delicate stalks and bright blossoms of grasses and wildflowers, equally beautiful and worthy of admiration. Black bears move silently for being such large animals. In my wilderness journeys I have often been surprised by their silent approach, either by accidental meeting, or by a deliberate visit drawn by the aroma of my supper." -Stephen Lyman
