More from Mt. Carmel

The following images were sent to me by the Sisters of Charity. The photographs are not good quality.

Polar Bear

The title is mine. It came without one. When I posted this on my Facebook for family and friends to see, many people thought they saw a bear. I can agree with that interpretation. What do you think? I do think at the very least, it is an animal. The animal appears to be splayed out- perhaps in turmoil. Orange is not a color usually associated with the arctic or its natural habitat. Perhaps it has stumbled into a fire…the charcoal grey and black are like a web, fence or entrapment.

Fire and ice.

I assume this was painted in the mid to late 1960s. It appears to be acrylic, and like most others of this time period, are in large, square format, unframed.
