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 firstname.lastname@example.org or use PayPal button if included in this post.

I have always loved and been busy making art.

Six years post graduate study and training at Ingbretson Studios http://studio.ingbretson.com/ learning the Boston Style of contemporary realism. I paint on a regular basis and am busy teaching art.
