New Art- Polar Mountain

I completely forgot to introduce one of my new paintings for 2009, it's titled "Polar Mountain."
I don't really know what exactly inspired me in the design of this piece except that I have been wanting to create something with Polar Bears for awhile now. And I of course wanted to throw something out into the industry that was completely different than every other Polar Bear art I've seen.

I also wanted to add some a sort of old fashioned charm to it with my old school hiker, he is so cool when you get up close and check out his threads. And raindrops have been coming up in a lot of my paintings lately that they just came out in this one as well. So I guess you could say this painting shows a goofy hiker who definitely jumped off the fashion train a couple decades ago, a cool ice cap mountain, and my polar bears. The best part about this painting, if your into a not so matchy matchy, which I'm not, it goes with anything. Thanks for looking! Marnie V.

I'm glad to hear the story behind this painting, Marnie. And I love the cool hiker at the top - his clothes are great! I've loved this piece since you made it your blog header picture. :-)

And I've been wanting to do a polar bear painting for a while, too. They look like they would be so much fun to paint!
