Fishing Bear with Sun

This large relief of fishing bear with the sun shining from behind was made in 1994 for a couple with a house in Blowing Rock, NC. It hangs over the stone mantle above a fireplace.

The house is sided with wormy chestnut bark shingles like so many others in the area. These are a reminder of the chestnut trees that were once prolific in the North Carolina mountains before the blight. There was a pile of leftover shingles in the shed and I was able to use them for the texture on the bear.
