This painting is my thank you to the gentle giant I met in Hall Beach, Nunavut during my first and likely last chance to see a polar bear in its natural habitat.
Every day our bears are travelling farther to find sea ice they can hunt on and are unfortunately being pushed into towns to find food and often their demise.
This was true for the boy I saw. There is one less giant in the world and that breaks my heart. This one is for him.
