IceBear Studio

The Hawk and the Raven

A work in progress, estimated 2 to 3 weeks to completion 

Old Growth Yellow cedar,  cut for road clearing on the west  coast of Vancouver Island, has been curing for over 20 years.

Meaning: coming together and overcoming difficulties that are common to both.

The round sun in background is as it appeared in the artists vision, but most unusual depiction   but just recently a new closeup photo of the sun was published, that has it looking very much like how the artist imagined it to be.

Still to come: final details, a light tint and protective sealers

Most Recent Commission

Welcome to IceBear’s world, a place where imagination rules, wonder and curiosity are the order of the day. 

Translation and meaning is often left entirely to you the viewer; interpret and take away from any individual piece  of art what you will. Some will find magical beings, spirits or imaginary creatures floating through, others will find nothing but the most obvious. There is no right or wrong. But we have been told by many collectors that even years after living with a painting, one day when they look at it, they find things  they have never seen before. Perhaps it is a trick of the light, a shadow, a fleck of dust, but that original sense of wonder is recreated, and we receive happy posts of  thanks and appreciation!
