Swept by solar winds
In a wondrous flight
Reaching like a rainbow across the night
Touching every heart
Healing every soul
With eternal light.

sometimes your work has several creatures in various musical relations to each other; but this one is a singular presence, a large soft but mountainous thing which, though like light, dominates the entire image like a huge clump of earth. Your pov (forgive the photographic term) lets us see the true mass of the beast; seeing it, as we do, via a big broad swath of its body. And the hues---those yellowish, whitish & brown coat-hues---makes it shine as if it were an apparition, or made of light rather than flesh. Not easy to get that and massivity in one image. The surroundings are simple but sumptuous, and the aurora borealis is painted with painterly opulence, the peak of its hues extending the bear's head. A beautiful evocation, filled with very warm light (nice contrast to the cold white domain in which the bear lives), and glowing with a real inner warmth. Beautiful work from you, once more.
