Two Things

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.

  1. Poor bear. My daughter,who is 43 now, still sleeps with her's (and her boyfriend). She has got him from here grandma when she was born.Even when she is going on a holliday, he goes with her.

    Nice piece!

  3. Beth, love him yourself! You've shown him that in your sketch...go ahead cuddle him, we wont' tell! (I was going to give away some of my bears and my husband wouldn't hear of it. They live with us, and get the occasional sketch and hug. Funny, eh?)

  4. Clare and Cathy, I'm beginning to see that he does live in my heart. Think I'll give him a cuddle tonight!

  6. Some bears are meant for certain people. This fellow obviously wasn't for your son. Perhaps he is meant for you
