Polar Bear — original wildlfe painting by Texas artist RG Pettit

Polar Bear is the latest in a series of paintings of endangered animals by RG Pettit. These beautiful and powerful marine mammals aren't endangered yet, but are considered threatened, due to ongoing and potential loss of their sea ice habitat resulting from climate change. I love the live tundra buggy cam videos of polar bear migration on Seeing them in their own habitat instead of a zoo is magical.

This piece is 10" x 10" oil on linen. To see the other paintings in this series, visit
