Legacy of A Mother Bear


This painting is BIG! At 4' x 6' this is truly a showcase piece for your home!

“Legacy of a Mother Bear” celebrates the famous mother bear, Grizzly 399, and her four cubs. When Grizzly 399 came out of her den last spring in Grand Teton National Park, she captured the hearts of millions of people as she expertly cared for four boisterous cubs. Most grizzly bears have one or two cubs, making 4 cubs quite the handful. I was thrilled when we learned that Grizzly 399 successfully raised her cubs through hibernation and came out again this spring with all four second year cubs in tow. I love the gangly teenager look of second year cubs just out of the den, and I just couldn’t wait to paint them again! It has been such a crazy summer.

I haven’t gotten a chance to see the bears in person yet this year, so I got permission from local photographer and wildlife advocate @tiffanytaxis to use a photo of hers as inspiration.
