POLAR ATTRACTION, LIMITED EDITION PRINT
NOTES: Greg’s artistic approaches are as varied as the wildlife he portrays, so when he told us The Cascades would be followed up by another bear portrait, we knew it would be distinctly different. The title Polar Attraction suggests courtship, but as Greg explains,these polar bears have a strictly platonic relationship. They’re siblings enjoying some gentle sparring to keep up their strength for the season of hunting ahead. It was a challenge to work ‘wet on wet,’ making a transition from the cool colors below ultimately to the warm ones on top. I also wanted to achieve a color harmony between the background and the focal point, helping to convey the scene’s peaceful, playful mood. Published from the artist’s original oil painting.

Greg Beecham bio
"The son of the artist Tom Beecham, Greg grew up hunting, fishing, observing
nature and learning to draw—always aware of a yearning to follow in his
father’s footsteps. He remembers standing for hours with his dad, studying the
movements of whitetail deer in the woods behind their home.
His dream of studying full-time with his father had to be postponed until Greg
completed a tour in the U.S. Navy. He enlisted as a hospital corpsman and
served on the Guided Missile Destroyer the USS John S. McCain, which sailed
home from Vietnam just six days after Beecham reported for duty. Finally, in
1978, after a few years at Southern Oregon State College, father and son
dedicated themselves to developing Greg’s fine art career. At an art show in
1985, Beecham was further inspired by Bob Kuhn, who gave me "permission," as
Greg puts it, to play with paint. Since then, Beecham has won many awards for
his fluid unions of animal and environment, including Best of Show, People’s
Choice and Artist’s Choice awards at the C.M. Russell Auction; Best of Show,
People’s Choice and Featured Artist honors at the Pacific Rim Wildlife Art
Show, and the Wildlife Art News Award at the Society of Animal Artist’s Art
Exhibition. He was just asked to be special guest artist at the ‘99
Southeastern Wildlife Exposition. In addition, Beecham’s artwork has been
exhibited in the Museum of Natural History in Beijing, China and is in the
permanent collection of the Leigh Yawkey Woodson Museum and the Clymer Museum
in Ellensburg, Washington.
A devout Christian, Greg Beecham honors the beauty of creation while raising
his children to become productive, caring people and remaining a loving husband
to his wife of more than twenty years. "I try to create interesting
compositions, complimented by dynamic color harmonies, light and value," he
says. "My motto? Do all things unto the Lord and get so good you can’t be
