Looks like all the visitors I've talked to in the art room at the Castle ( Banff Springs Hotel), have seen bears. Some have seem them three or four times. So be careful out there while in the park. It's only fitting I should paint a couple. 'Bearfaced, acrylic 18 x 24 and 'Boo Grizzly', 30 x 30.
Boo Bear is a resident of Kicking Horse Grizzly Bear Refuge in Golden BC where Boo has being happily living since he was a cub. "This is the largest enclosed and protected grizzly bear habitat in the world. The 20-acre refuge is the home of our resident grizzly bear, Boo. Within this natural mountainside habitat, Boo hunts, plays, forages, and explores just like his wild cousins.
The refuge is open daily during the summer and provides guests the opportunity to observe an adult grizzly bear going about his daily routine. Everyone who comes to visit Boo is fascinated by his strength, agility, intelligence, and personality.' More about Boo here
I would like to thank the staff for allowing me to paint Boo. Photo Credit goes to Wendy Chambers her website
