Meet The Three Modern Bears. These little guys where created on canvas
board. I used bits and pieces of scrapbooking papers, clothing tags,buttons
and dollies. Basically anything and everything I could get my hands on.
I love doing stuff like this on a snowy winters day. They are already sold,
but more is on the way! Have a great week everyone

I love these bears, Vanessa. The fact they are made out of papers and bits makes them more special.

They have SUCH chatacter!!!
Yes, canvas has advantages that other mediumds don't; I'm working on canvas panels right now, which some consoder the lowerst of the low, but the are good quality, firm, hold up well to the torture I put them through and quite frankly, could be popped in an envelope and mailed. And they frame easy.
Aned I'm rambling...sorry! Not enough java yet!

Yowza, I love the little '73' peg and the clothing labels and the buttons and the backgrounds. And of COURSE the bears! It would be nothing without the bears! Holy cow, V, I love your bears. Hey, stay warm over there. I'm going to have me some cocoa. Wish the can had one of your labels, though.

Your bears are just beautiful. I wish I could have one. I'm happy that they already have homes to go to.

I have a bears drawing rolling around in my mind, but mines is a little different.

Love you so much.
