* NEW * In My ETSY Store -- Hibernating Black Bear

It's been a very long time since I've painted, and I must confess that I've been feeling quite slow and rusty at it.  I am, however, still very much in love with painting, and it often makes me feel like I'm closest to being my true self when I'm doing it (do you ever feel this way when doing something? :O).

I'm happy to say that I've put up a new wood toy on my ETSY here he is...the hibernating Black Bear:

I hope to pick up the paint brush again real soon!


  1. Love! So charming. And decidedly my favourite painted critter yet. (:

  2. Awww -- I love it!! It surely doesn't SHOW that you were slow and rusty at it!! That lttle stomach is so cute... I know that I will come back to this post to look at these pictures again and again!!

  3. Awwww... he's the cutest, Charlyn! I'm in love with his tiny tail and the fish from his stomach. Keep painting, please!

  4. Love the details on his feet! I still wish I could buy all of them! One day I will... well atleast one, hehehe :'D
