In Process: Bear Story


In Process: Bear Story by Sandra Galda
16"x20" oil on masonite

I started this painting today with the idea of commemorating my German heritage. It is enjoyable to paint beautiful and sentimental objects. The German bear, possibly a Steiff bear, is pretty old as is the teacup. They belonged to my grandmother, then my mother, and now they are entrusted to me. I have lots more work to do on this one, check back! If interested in purchasing contact my email address sgalda@aol.com or use PayPal button if included in this post.

Hi Sandra,
Love the idea of painting sentimental objects! It's all wonderful, but I especially like the beer stein in the background.
I think it's the way that you've handled the pattern. That one little part alone would make a beautiful painting, all by itself!

I really like the tight composition. The sentiment is handled in an elevated manner and makes this a powerful ainting. . . .you are so prolific! Your color is spectacular as always.
