Light On The Landscape


Wildlife Art Journal juried "Berry Picker" to be in Spring 2012 issue
Wildlife Art Journal juried

June 1, 2012

 International magazine "Wildlife Art Journal" juried Berry Picker, Cinnamon Black Bear, an 11" x 14" oil painting by Ivan Kelly to be included in its Spring online issue "GALLERY OF THE COMMONS RETURNS." (pge29) Wildlife Art Journal is an online, international magazine that celebrates art in wildlife and the natural world.  The painting can be found online at www.WildlifeArtJournal.com

Ivan's painting career began with a love for craggy mountains & its wildlife that first inspired him in 1973 to begin painting on-location in the Rocky Mountains. For many years Ivan painted the Coastal landscape and was consequently juried into several national exhibits. His painting tours to the U.S. & Canadian Rockies, Grand Tetons, Banff, Yellowstone and locally, Central Oregon is now the latest inspiration for his Wildlife oil series of Rocky Mountain Black Bears, Elk, Bison, Cougars and more NW big game.

On one such painting trip through Yellowstone Park, we came upon a black bear sow along with her cub, enjoying their luncheon on mountain berry bushes which inspired "Berry Picker".
