"Where's home? What's happening Momma?"

Acrylic on Canvas, 8"x7"

This painting of the cute Polar bear cub was a submission to The Green Palette Challenge for this week's topic-Global Warming.
Frankly, I didn't feel good painting this scene. The sheer helplessness of the animal drifting away on the Arctic ocean,  is disturbing. Nevertheless, I had to paint this, to emphasize the issue at hand.
