“The idea for this painting came while driving on one of those bright, cold, January days, with a strong northwest wind following a snowstorm. The back roads near our home were mostly blown bare, but here and there they were clogged with thick drifts…then the thought occurred to me about traveling in the Arctic. What if you enterend a drift and unknown to you, a polar bear entered the drift from the other side. By the time you both knew this, it would be too late. With polar bears it is important to see them from as far away as possible. As soon as I returned from the drive, I did a sketch of the concept. This painting is the wayt I expressed the discovery.” – R. Bateman.”Robert Bateman
