WIP 1 and all because...

The idea for this painting began when I was given two teddies. One very fluffy and slightly concerned looking teddy was sent to me from Christelle in Australia and a hand knitted teddy came from Ruth in England. Thank you both for your lovely gifts.

I have been working on the background over the last week. Colour choice is so important to me in helping to create a mood or feel in a painting.  I wanted a warm, sunny, loving, homely feel so chose a palette of pinks, yellows and browns with just a hint of green for this painting.

I know the remainder of the painting at the moment is just an assortment of big white spaces but any guesses what the other objects will be in the painting and what the two Ted's will be called?



  1. Ona, I think I spy a ball of yarn there. Maybe you will call it "Knit-Ted Together in Friendship" :)

  2. knitTed has to be one of them. I think i can see a teapot


  3. I'm very intrigued. All I know is that it's going to be beautiful.

  4. Thank you Christelle for the inspiration :)
