Polar bears are the largest land carnivores in the Arctic and completely dependent upon the Arctic sea ice. During the summer, the bears come ashore on the barren, brown land near areas like the Hudson Bay. There is very little to eat during this time, and the bears grow thin.

In the fall and winter, the bears must attempt to board the sea ice, where they can hunt for their preferred prey, seals. Shrinking sea ice has made this seasonal transition more and more difficult, and bears are forced to come ashore earlier in the spring each year as the sea ice disappears. The lean times have made the bears thin, hungry and less likely to bear young.

Arctic Sea shows the two stark biomes of the Arctic, the rugged terrain of land and the cold brilliance of the sea, crisscrossed by lines of travel and migration.

Artwork Details

Artwork measuring 5" x 5" or larger is on 1.5" deep gallery-wrapped canvas. 4" x 4" artwork is on .5 deep "mini" stapleless canvas. The sides of the canvas are painted matte black (white for very light artworks). Artwork is signed and dated on the side and back.

Picture hangers, wires, etc. are not used and usually not required. The artwork can hang on one or two small picture-hanging nails. If desired, you can add picture-hanging hardware in order to hang the artwork on a picture hook.

If you choose to frame your canvas, I recommend a wooden floating frame. My canvases are gallery-wrapped (backstapled) with finished edges and are therefore also suitable for hanging without a frame.
