'I am just taking a walk', said Mr. Bear
acrylic on wood, 8 x 10 inches
I can't tell you how much I love this painting. And I loved making it: the layering, the drawing,
the forgiving nature of acrylics, and then, THEN, he started speaking to me, and I regained something
in my painting process that I thought was lost to me for good. The story. The blessed story because
its presence makes me bubble with joy inside. To top all that buzz, I used acrylic varnish, GLOSS, over this baby (after I took the photo), and that took the colors to a whole other level of scrumptiousness. You know me by now my sweets, so you pretty well know how I always moan and groan about not loving what I am making , about being restless and such, so when I say I am loving this and I loved doing it, I guess that's some big change!
I still want to get back into my yearly project, but with some twists there too. Very soon. And please forgive me for not having done any blog reading lately, I do miss you all, but between the bears and family life I got swamped. (and very soon I will tell you 'why' I started making bears in the first place!)
