My Latest Bear Painting, Featured in the Teddy Bear Times Magazine...


 Remember the last time my teddy bear paintings were featured in the 'Teddy Bear Times' magazine...?  

Well, they've only gone and done it again! 
Oh yes they have! :0)

I was contacted a few weeks ago by the magazine saying that they had been told of the story of Bristol Bear and that they hoped I wouldn't mind sharing my part in the story with them.

...Well, of course I had to think about it... for a nano second!! ;0) 

Anyway, naturally I wanted to share the news on here!




I wish I could find a way of giving you a better image so you can actually read it!




I have to say, it's a real honor to be featured for a second time!
I am almost exploding with chuftiness!!


Before I go, I must remind you that in my next post I will be officially launching my new website with a...
'Limited Edition Teddy Bear Print Giveaway!!!'

So if you want a chance to win, watch this space!
See you then :0)

  1. Congrats on the feature! I have to admit I think it's hilarious that there is a teddy bear times magazine but there is obviously a demand for teddy bear news so for you to be featured in it twice can only be a good thing to alert all those teddy lovers to your wonderful art! !

    1. Thanks Nic!
      Yes, who'd have thought it? And it's a worldwide publication so there must be a global interest in Teddy Bears! In any case, I'm afraid that my models are a little clapped out and battered to feature in Vogue! ;0)

  3. Well done Sandra - that is so cool! Shame we can't quite make out the text.

    By the way, I don't know what it is about teddy bears, but we have just had another teddy bear shop open here in Market Harborough!

    1. Thank you... yes it is Frank! When I blow it up, the text seems to go all blurry... You will just have to go to WH Smiths and by a copy, lol! ;0)
      There are a couple of bear shops fairly local to us too Frank. You wouldn't think enough people would be interested would you!

  4. Congratulations, Sandra - it is such a compelling story with your painting brilliantly illustrating it and capturing the sad loneliness of the forgotten bear. I am so happy for you!

    1. Thanks so much Kim.
      Yes it is exciting to see it in print. And it's going to be in another bear magazine soon too!
      Still, It's all down to the bear and his story, so I can't really take all the credit :0)
