«Asheville's Guardian: The Black Bear Up Close». Chris Rutledge Chris Rutledge
«Asheville's Guardian: The Black Bear Up Close» is a large-scale acrylic painting that brings viewers into an intimate encounter with the iconic Black Bear of Asheville, North Carolina. The painting is a masterclass in the use of thick paint on canvas, its bold brush strokes skillfully combining to depict a detailed and dynamic portrait of this majestic creature.

The bear fills the frame, its richly textured fur rendered in a flurry of wild brush strokes that speak to the raw power and captivating beauty of this iconic North Carolinian species. The vivid and pastel color palette used in the work plays an instrumental role in capturing the essence of the Black Bear, its darker hues contrasted beautifully against the lighter tones to imbue the image with depth and character.

In the style of expressionist colors, the piece contrasts and blends hues in a way that adds a unique artistic flair to the realistic portrayal of the bear. The result is a visual feast, the vibrant colors creating an image that is as captivating as the creature it represents.

«Asheville's Guardian: The Black Bear Up Close» is more than just a portrait of a bear. It is a celebration of Asheville's natural heritage, a tribute to the Black Bear, and an embodiment of the spirit of North Carolina.
