A selection of paintings of one of my favourite subjects
Bears are a little bit of an obsession with me - I've always liked them and the house is full of bears in various forms such as necklaces, ornaments, soft toys and the like. However, upon discovering the live web cams of Explore.org and being able to watch these magnificent creatures go about their daily lives and to be able to take my own pictures, my obsession went up a notch. I have been able to paint bears as I want to paint them, without having to search through books and Google! Here is a selection of recent work:
