Family Time – abstract art bear painting on canvas

(1 customer review)


Family Time is an original mama bear painting and her two bear cubs for sale by Banner Elk artist Kent Paulette.  Buy this abstract wildlife painting in small & large sizes on canvas.  This modern art is made of colorful geometric shapes and the black bears have very expressive looks on their faces.

The mama bear adult is black, blue, and purple in this animal art. The bear cubs are brown and red.  The background is yellow and brown.  This contemporary wildlife art has elements of Expressionism, Cubism, and bear artist Kent Paulette’s own organic style.

The dynamic brushstrokes give this expressive bear portrait movement and a bold energy.  The vibrant colors further bring this bear art to life.  Some shapes are angular and some are curvy which give this creative fine art of animals in the wild a lot of motion.

This is the first painting that K. Paulette used creek water to add to the acrylic paint instead of tap water. He went to his favorite place in his backyard at Laurel Creek to gather the water. This helped him to connect with nature and it inspired this animal painting of three bears.  One is a mama black bear and the other are two bear cubs.

He painted Family Time using a brush on stretched canvas in October of 2015.  Wildlife artist Kent Paulette has black bear paintings in downtown Banner Elk, North Carolina at Studio 140 art gallery next door to Sorrento’s Bistro.

Paulette describes his process for this modern bear art, “I’m learning so much on every painting now. Took an idea from the last one, expanded that idea into this painting. Gonna take ideas from this painting and expand them into the next one.”
