Some people wanted to know if the brushes were coated with honey, and I’m trying to make up my mind as to whether this is a slam on modern art or is it just a circumstance where the bear should receive kudos for his artistic ability. Whatever the case a resident of Bear Country USA, near Rapid City, S. D., has been awarded a prize for his painting. His name is Kobe. Kobe, the bear.
An artist, herself, a volunteer at Bear Country submitted the painting to the South Dakota fair. The painting now sports a second place ribbon after it was judged for its color, composition and uninhibited expression.
The judges had no idea of the identity of the painter; they just saw it as a fine work of art
