Along the Ridge - Grizzly Bear by artist Robert Bateman

“I can’t conceive of anything being more varied and rich and handsome than the planet Earth. And its crowning beauty is the natural world. I want to soak it up, to understand it as well as I can, and to absorb it . . . and then I’d like to put it together and express it in my paintings. This is the way I want to dedicate my work.”

– Robert Bateman
