Similar in concept to Soul Mates, this painting explores the connections and complicated relationships between humans, animals, and food. Humans often assume the apple tree belongs to us but the reality is we are all interconnected. The apples from this tree are a very important part of Bear’s diet, especially when they’re preparing to hibernate. We need to understand that all our resources must be shared with all life.
