"Into the Sunset " is my new series of polar bears with the theme of mindful reflection, and hope. A beautiful polar bear is portrayed against the setting sun, and the sea. It is spring. The darkness of the winter is retreating, as is the sea ice, so important for the polar bear's survival. As the sun sets, its glory is reflected in what remains of the sea ice and off the polar bear's translucent fur. sea, ice and polar bear connected by light, colour and warmth
We can reflect, too. What will we loose under the threat of climate change? The setting sun symbolizes the end of the story and the promise of the new day ahead. Our story is connected to that of the polar bear. It is only through our actions, hope is not enough, that we will all go into the sunset as a happy ending.
