I am starting to recover from all the tumult of having company - I am expecting more Sunday. I did have a chance to make a piece (one of two) for this years 10X10 show and sale in Brunswick. I also did a quick sketch and watercolor of a teddy bear I bought my son. His wholesale rejection of this sweet Steiff bear that I spend 6 hours (in traffic) shopping for was a huge shock. I almost felt the blow of rejection myself and have always had a soft spot in my heart for this little guy who never slept in the arms of a child or was even loved. Perhaps one day I will find someone who will love him and think he is the best bear ever.
