Description
Predominant colours are red, black, white, teal blue, pink, green and yellow. In the foreground, beginning at the viewer’s left, wildflowers, that appear to be Indian Paintbrush, are painted in shades of pink and red with green and yellow leaves, and black stems. They are on a background of teal blue and black and white diagonal stripes. There are also strips of paper cut in diagonals that are glued on and painted over. The stripes and flowers grow steadily larger as they progress to the viewer’s right. On the viewer’s left, above the flowers, on the white background is a hint of a blue and green rectangle, white space, and then a long red rectangular shape that progresses into the flowers. Mid-centre is a charcoal drawing of a mountain range on the Icefield Parkway road. Trees starting at the viewer’s left continue across the valley rising to the scree slopes of one mountain’s lower slopes on the viewer’s right. Above the trees is a range of mountains with a glacier below (it could be part of the Crowfoot Glacier). The top one-third of the painting has two grizzly bears drawn with charcoal and outlined in white, on a red background. The bears appear to be on a slope; the bottom bear is feeding, his nose to the black ground and the bear above is looking at the viewer. There are the colourful wildflowers on the blue background left of the bears, white space, the bears, another larger white space, and then the wildflowers again to the viewer’s extreme right.The painting is signed in the brc “Enns ‘91”.
