On Thin Ice - Polar Bear, original wildlife painting is sold. Limited edition giclée wildlife prints on paper & canvas in three sizes are available by Canadian wildlife artist Michael Pape

This male Polar Bear from the Toronto Zoo is an icon of hope. His Name is Inukshuk and walking stands about 5' 7" with a weight of 1100 pounds. He is a stunning specimen of beauty and magnificence. All adult Polar Bears at the Toronto Zoo including Inukshuk were orphans found wondering the Arctic. I was inspired to create a very large painting to capture the size and power as well as vulnerability of this bear after having the privilege to experience him very close. I painted Inukshuk thinner than he actually was because Polar bears need ice to hunt seals (their main food source) and with longer delays for ice to form due to global warming, many Polar Bears are going without food for longer and longer periods. I want the viewer of this painting to feel a sense of hope, contribution and empowerment to the future of this icon of the far North. - Michael Pape

About Michael Pape Giclée Limited Edition Prints

Giclée (Gee-Clay)

Giclée is a state of the art digital technology that has made it possible to create a fine art print that is extremely difficult to distinguish from the original painting or drawing. Giclées are available on archival acid free watercolour paper and or canvas. Michael Pape Giclées use pigment longevity inks and have a lifetime warranty. Each limited edition giclée is numbered and hand-signed by the artist. Read More

Giclée - Regular Edition is a regular signed and numbered limited edition, based off the artist proof. 

Giclée - Artist Proof Edition is a signed and numbered limited edition. An Artist Proof is the process of the artist manually matching the original painting colour to the limited edition giclée print colour. For example the pupil of an animals eye may be slightly darker on one Artist Proof than another. Each Artist Proof is slightly different in colour. An original if you will. Many artists charge a 20% premium because of this. Artist Proof Editions are usually limited to 10% (20 prints) of the Regular Edition (200 prints) for example. They are the most sought after limited edition by collectors.

Giclée - Conservation / Publisher Proof Edition are what charities offer for Fundraising.

On Thin Ice - Polar Bear - Detail

It is difficult to show the detail of my paintings on the web sometimes. As well as size. In this case the impact of the original painting and limited edition canvas print at 42" x 66". I have blown up these sections above to give you a more accurate sense of detail and impact.

In real life the original painting as well as the limited edition canvas print, have a life and impact of their own. You truly will feel the power and sensitivity behind this work.
