30 in 30- Day 1


Teton Totem


Teton Totem is a special animal ambassador living at Earthfire Institute in Driggs Idaho. I had the good fortune to be able to meet Teton Totem last October at his home where I took the reference photo for this painting. He is an amazing bear with a strong personality. I wasn't initially planning to paint him as a part of the 30 in 30, but he thought otherwise...AND he made it clear he wanted to be first! 

50% of the sale of the painting of Teton Totem will go to support the work of Earthfire Institute and the care of Teton Totem and his fellow animal ambassadors living there.
