Teddy Bears and other paintings

I have something to share with you ; I painted many years ago, doing contests etc... but my teddies were also there ; so I decided to paint again and here you will find my artwork ; this site is excellent because you can buy a print even a post card at 2 or 3 dollars or the printing on canvas .
I like the formula.

We are missing Arnold our cockatiel

On last October 15th, Arnold was not in good shape ; he is gone during the night at 2.15 am ; he was not alone ; I was with him, trying to make his pain not so difficult.
Arnold was like a family member, he was following us everywhere ; if we had to travel for my eye treatment at 1600 kms, he was in the car ;he liked it ; when my husband stop the car for a red light, he was not happy and was screaming asking to continue; his master but his best friend was Alain my husband.
Mom was there to share her love ; everyday, he was my pause friend ; staying on my shoulder, putting his head against my neck, he read a book with me during one hour.
Arnold, we are missing you and the big words you were saying... oh yes.... and also when you saw nice girls, you liked to call them....

To view the slideshow I made for Arnold, here is the link :

Contest for Candie my last creation



For the first time, I designed and created a HUGE teddy bear ; it was a challenge for me ; it was the first time I made one so big.
So I decided to present Candie in a contest in Saint John - NB



As you can see, I added an open mouth with a tongue and teeth.




And for the occasion, I updated the artist picture.
Candie would be judged next Tuesday and she will be back on Saturday, September 4th 2010 .
I'm crossing fingers because that contest is new also for me.
