"Cotton Candy Bears on a Winter's Eve" - acrylic on cradled wood panel, 8" x 10" x 1". Ready to hang. Available here and at Artfinder.
Whimsy wonderland continues in the studio! This week couple of bears - one of whom seems to be getting around the easy way. Which is what I wish I could do this week. Low energy slugfest here. It would be lovely to hitch a ride on a big snuggly bear and run errands like a lazy lima bean.
As we emerge from winter here in the PNW, assaulted by a frenzy of blooming color on every street, I imagine the forest bears emerging in a snuggly mass of cotton candy colored fur. After all, it is Portland. :)
Whatever did I do before there was an intern?
This week we present a video on how a painting begins (last time we showed you the ending). And if you turn up the sound, you will be able to enjoy my tiny anthem as part of the show.
A pencil sketch on wood panel...then painting out the background, adding those lovely florescent colors to the underpainting. Then a bit of this and a spot of that, until personalities begin to emerge. Sweetness!
