Today’s theme is The British Isles, so I thought I’d share this week’s new painting - so fresh off the easel it hasn’t got a name yet!
Oil 10x12” I mean, everyone in the British Isles loves a teddy bear. We grow up with Rupert the bear, Paddington bear, Goldilocks and the three bears, Winnie the Pooh and others. In pre-school there is often a special bear that the children can borrow. In our local school we had Barney - each weekend it was the turn of a different child to take him home and to record their special adventures with him in his diary. He went to the local park a lot! This particular bear decided they wanted their portrait painted and turned up in Sunningwell school of art just in time for this week’s lesson. They even brought some of their special toys with them! 😊 It’s the last 2 days of Artweeks and I’m hoping for a few more visitors over the weekend, although it is cold and grey again 🤞. It has been so rewarding seeing the response to my art from the visitors that have ventured out ❤️ If you want to watch today’s themed video it is here: https://youtu.be/arVRYznozBU
