Teddy Bear Dreams

Teddy Bear Dreams
22 x 22
Oil on Hardboard


Wow!  This was a HUGE painting for me.  22 x 22!  I did most of it with a palette knife.  I used a very limited palette for this painting.  Cad Yellow, Alizeron Crimson, Celeron Blue, Mars Black and white.  With just a touch of Cad Red Deep.  I was inspired by Daniel Gerhartz style of painting.  He has a great teaching blog.  If you haven't already, you should check it out.

Couldn't resist snapping this shot as my grandson slept for his nap.  I am a big believer in naps.  For everyone!!  Naps are a good way to push the reset button in the middle of the day.
