My Griz by Rachel K Schlueter


















SOLD

Oil on 5x6" panel. 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.

  2. Your brushwork and variation of hues is 'knock -out'.

  5. This painting has a raw animal physicality! The brush work is as powerful as the bear!
