Anthony - Thanks for the kind words! What's interesting (which alas does not translate at all in the photo) is I used something know as Interference Colors in painting the snow on the Inukshuk - a sort of clear glaze that as your viewing angle changes, the sheen on the snow shifts from blue to green to purple, much in the same way the snow sparkles in the sunlight - it's a very cool (pardon the pun) and adds a sort of Spirit to the Inukshuk (and the moment)
This is a fantastic work of art!! I love polar bears!!! Your blues and yellows are wonderful!
Thank you Lynn - it was an enjoyable challenge to try to create the proper atmosphere for that environment - I'm glad the effort came across in a positive way. Thanks for noticing!!
Wow, I love this! Especially all the reflected color in his "white" fur!
Thanks Rich - I have some other Polar Bear paintings already in the works!
This is a great painting! I looked at some of your other paintings also. Great Stuff!!
Thank you ALL for your kind words regarding this artwork - I believe the title (Crossroads) is significant in many ways, not only personally with regard to artistic intent for the next decade but also in how it applies to the subject of this painting. The concept is in the definition of the title ("a point at which a crucial decision must be made that will have far-reaching consequences"), as it reflects current realties - and I say "current" because as the definition of "crossroads" suggests, we can change that reality - the little stone figure (the Inukshuk) represents Man's part in all of this as having the power to choose/point the course of history to a more favorable outcome for all...
Fantastic! Very nice texture!
