Artist:Edward Aldrich Title: Hunter's Gaze Edition : Artist Signed and Numbered (S/N) Limited Edition Canvas Giclee to 95 Image size: 40" x 40" About the Art: In this dramatic portrait of one of nature's most powerful and fierce creatures, a grizzly stares intently into the distance. The bear cautiously observes his prey waiting for the right moment to strike. Normally a solitary animal, the grizzly is an elusive predator that is surprisingly agile considering it can weigh up to 1000 pounds. The bear has the ability to run faster uphill rather down due to the large hump of muscle over its shoulders. Running in a zig-zag pattern with its nose to the ground, the grizzly picks up the scent of its prey. Grizzlies can feed on moose, deer, elk, sheep, and even bison and caribou, but also eat berries, nuts, and fish. About the Artist:Aldrich creates his oil paintings on masonite in a big open studio which is part of his home in a western suburb of Denver. Several layers of glazing convey texture and gives the colors a brilliant depth. Rocks are a passion of his. “ I just love rocks. …they have as much character as any animal. They are a wonderful complement to animals.” Reproducing the intricacies of various textures was a challenge that Aldrich feels he has accomplished.Portraits are Aldrich’s favorites because they focus the viewer’s attention and allow the artist to bring out the character of the animal. Much of his process has involved determination and experimentation, though he learned some of the techniques at the Rhode Island School of Design (1983-87), attended Master Classes with Robert Bateman in British Columbia and has been to Africa several times to “see” the big cats in their element.
