Default artistic research for for Honest John

John is coming to visit, so I set out a bait station to get some reference pictures for model making and painting.

Might have to take John out there so he can paint from Live models.

Check out the claws on that first bear.

Currently we have 5 different brown bears on the bait, and about 2400 pictures...

I took the tests and retirement is the best job I'm suited for.

Now I know why old guys wear suspenders.

Raven stop by Herb, and sometimes when the Griz are done a Black bear will wonder in.

So we saw our first live grizzly bear in Denali NPF last moth and can tell you they can move way faster then you'd think. On the train between the last port and McKinley Lodge we saw a very nice black bear. Well I assume he was nice but then there was a train between us and him.

Well that is a bummer. I was hoping for Bigfoot. Best change bait, maybe some Playboys, and a six pack of Bud.

Call me a craftsman, artisan, or artistic, and I will accept that. Call me an artist and you will likely get a quite rude comment in return. I am not a @#$%ing artist.

Well you went right past our little gallery, as we are on the tracks to Denali.

I had read they can run down a deer, so if I go to bear country, I am wearing my Nikes......
