Grizzly Bear no. 1, oil by RK Schlueter

Oil on 6"x6" panel, alla prima. I have turned my attention this week to the Grizzly. The inspiration for this painting came from a photo in a book but also from a mysterious place in my Psyche, I have had many encounters over the years with the bear during dream time and I have had real encounters several times while camping. This strange connection feels very intense and surreal, when I paint the bear my creativity is electrified.


  1. How do you do that?! It's beautiful!

  2. Bravo! Amazing what happens when basically only two shapes, expertly designed, are used to produce a painting.
    I like your psyche too.

  3. Beautiful Rachel, keep following your vision!
