The bear was one of Steve's most-memorable and rarely-painted animals. The native Miwok word for the grizzly bear is the source of the name "Yosemite," which was Steve's favorite place on Earth. The quiet serenity of this image is a reminder of our fellowship with both the natural and animal world--goals which honor the memory and legacy of the artist.

“He paints the wilderness with a knowledge and genuineness that can only be expressed by someone who has ‘been there’.”
Stephen Lyman was an explorer who specialized in painting the most elusive moments in nature. His inspiring work was inspired, in turn, by the writing and teachings of famous naturalist John Muir. "Muir wrote, 'Climb the mountains and get their good tidings,'" Stephen said. "I know exactly what he meant." Stephen's love of the great outdoors stemmed from a childhood spent in the Pacific Northwest, where hiking in Snake River country was a regular family ritual.
