animal art -mohair teddy bear

Hi there!
This is a little war time bear named Tillie. Although she is a bit scruffy and has one ear that is a mess she has the most wonderful smile.
I enjoy her so much because every time I look at her,she makes me smile too!

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!
