A Polar Bear Named Samuel!

I painted this one last night and when I woke up this morning my son Garrett had already named him Samuel. I think that name suits him just fine don't you? He also said to me, "Mom, did you know that polar bears are on the endangered species list"? I told him, " I know honey, don't you think that is sad"? His response was, "Yes mom I do!" Something tells me that he will be an advocate for all animals when he is older. He is always talking to me about them and our cat Peapod really loves him and she's quite particular about who she likes too. Well without further wait here is Samuel the polar bear!

A Polar Bear Named Averly

I would like you all to meet a friend of mine. He is a Polar Bear named Averly. I found him at about 10:30 PM last night on my watercolor paper. I have never met a kinder soul. As you can see he is smiling because he is happy! He was happy to be born out of my paintbrush. I haven't used my paint brush in over 4 years now. Did you ever do something in your life that made your heart twitter? Well besides fall in love maybe. A life dream or ambition. Painting does it for me. I can't believe that I have waiting this long to do it. My husband once told me. You need to make time for the things that you love to do, and never make excuses to yourself for not doing them for you shall surely miss out on a lot of things in life if you do. Well I hope to be sharing many more of my newest  paintings with you all as I get them done. Till then, meet Averly!

Ta Ta for now,
