Vintage Teddy Bear Prints finally in production...



Firstly, you need to imagine my big, smiley face...

My publisher has just sent me a proof of the advert for my Vintage Teddy Bear Prints :0D




If you click the image, you should be able to see it much larger than you see it here :0)

I'm really happy with it!
It's a shame he couldn't get all four bears on the ad, but still, I think it looks lovely!

Meanwhile, here is one of the prints mounted, wrapped and ready for shipping (taken at a rather odd angle, but you get the idea)...

My first collector is picking up bears 1, 2 and 3 next week and she has already reserved a bear 4 print too. I am SO happy about that, as you can imagine! :0)

But, now it's time to get on with bear numbers 5 and 6!

Yesterday, I started playing around with some new set ups. This is always the part I find to be the most difficult. The composition is just so important!  
I am going to do eight bears in this series, so I would really like to have two in progress at once this time.

Until I have the bears set up and ready to paint, I'm going to have to take a break from my blog for just a week or two, because I really need to spend as much time in the studio as possible. 
I will still keep up with your own blogs though, so I'm sure you won't miss me that much ;0)

And - when I come back, I might have a bit of news to share, so don't go away!

Meanwhile, maybe you could click the like button (that's of course if you actually do like)? 
Obviously I would love you to share, but from day one I have had problems with the original 'like' button code which didn't actually work and so I have re-entered the code today. 
I'd like to know if it actually works now :0)

Have a great weekend!

:0D

    1. Well John, I do have one collector but the bears have only just come in to production so I've yet to determine whether anyone else will like them! I do hope so. I am sure I will cry (joyful tears)when a new sale comes! :0)

    1. Thank you Tracey. It's interesting that almost everyone likes the first bear the best, which surprises me because there isn't really much to it. My next I hope will be similar in that is more about the bear than the background :0)
