This charming oil painting by Richard R. Miller depicts a group of polar bears at the San Diego Zoo on a bright sunny day. The animals and their zoo habitat appear both vivid and realistic, as if the bears were close by. In the foreground is a big, fluffy polar bear, looking rested and peering to the right. Two other polar bears can be seen playing on an ice floe deeper in the exhibit space. The colors used are mostly gray and blue. The painting is framed by a wooden frame with a silver finish.
