It started in the spring. The online site www.explore.org shares a live feed camera positioned at Brooks Falls Alaska. I found it addicting. I used it as a drawing/painting warm up, practice, and entertainment. I now have sketchbooks full of 'stories' of bears fishing the falls. This painting is the result of many sketches. The bears arrive skinny and hungry waiting for the fish run. The fish arrive, and the fishing begins. It is a thrill to watch the different styles of fishing and the hierarchy of who claims the best spots. On top of the falls is a prime spot to catch the perfect salmon.
