Barney - antique teddy bear portrait by 

oil on wood panel – 6″×8″
animal art teddy bear portrait series

Featured in_For the Love of Teddy Bears_

This is Barney, One of my sweetest little fellows. He was rescued from a skip (dumpster) in England.
He was a bit of a mess but recently went to the doctor for a cleaning. He still has some dark spots and a bit of a wobbly head but I think it adds to his character.

If you like the above painting…… It is in one of my books of 50 images titled: Art Journal of Daily Life – volume two available- just click here

I have been a painter and sculptor for over 43 years professionally and after all this time, I still love it. It is challenging, makes me think about the world and keeps me connected to life.
My art is a mix of realism and impressionism with a bit of humor thrown in.
I am available for commission work- just ask!

    Oh, isn’t he just adorable and look so much alive!!! Well done!

  • Hello there!! Glad you like Barney. I started doing portraits of my little friends quite a long time ago. I never really cared much for the new teddies…I always seem to fall for the old, tattered ones that have been well loved! Thanks for stopping by and leaving your comments!
