It's been ages since I had fun painting  a Ted so when I thought of this idea I just couldn't resist.

 It's been pretty chilly here over the last few weeks. Temperatures have been well below zero with heaps of snow. Despite the frigid temperatures one of my little bears was quite happy to pose while I painted him. As you know though, I am not a fast painter....I think little Frost-Ted would really like to come inside now. Do you think you can you let him in?

Broken In Transit

'Broken in Transit!!!!....the nightmare of all artists who transport paintings to and from exhibitions! We put so much of our hearts into our work and are so pleased when they are accepted into big exhibitions ... then this happens...

I think my models face says exactly how we feel. Don't you?

Thank you so much to Garry Sugden for agreeing to be my model for this painting. Think I am going to have to find a really distressed frame for this one.
