Richard Bledsoe “Bears” acrylic on canvas 20″ x 24″
I usually work from visions I receive. But sometimes a painting arises unbidden on the canvas in front of me. I have no choice but to obey it.
Such was the case with this painting. I had decided to proceed on an entirely different subject, but as I was covering the canvas in a base coat of color, the bear on the right appeared, and brought the whole painting with him.
