My first impression is that this is an old sad or depressed bear. Animals (mammals) have the same feelings and emotions as human beings.

I also like the tree just behind him/her and the flower or branch with leaves in the front.

I'm looking forward to the finished version. :)

He sort of looks like he's sitting there pondering something. Just chillin in the woods and thinking.

Very nice! I just started taking watercolor classes, and I'm really enjoying it! Seeing nice work like this inspires to me keep at it. :)

I think the bear looks contemplative.

Thank you all.
This one will be cool because of the bright light shinning on the leaves and dark shadows. You get a glimpse of this to the right of the Aspen.

Thanks everyone for sharing your thoughts.
I am just about done here. Made a big change. The stump was giving me a problem so I leafed it out. Now for a few more leaves and This is done.

Yesterday I received a email from a curator of the gaithersburgs art association after I sent her some pictures , the bear will be in this one. The curators reply::

Got them- they look great!

I will be back to you within the next few weeks to let you know where and when you will be exhibiting!

Thanks!
