Bear Story by Sandra Galda (NA)


Bear Story by Sandra Galda (NA)
16"x20" oil on masonite

Worked on this today to bring it to near completion. I posted this when I first started it a few weeks ago. Never got back to finish it till now. The items are commemorate my 50% German heritage. Next I will have to paint Italian items! The bear and the tea set were my Grandmother's. Will try to get a better photo.

I love what you have done with this painting. It has a real shimmer to it. I especially like the stein.

This really came out nicely. I too think the stein is super...the work on the lid and how you handled the ceramic design, just great!

Sandra Galda said...

Thanks Linda and Rob, The background right hand side needs a bit brighter gradation ...more life to it...so when drier I may go in and work a bit. but it is off the easel now. The bear and the tea cup (part of a set) were my grandmother's from Germany, it is quite old.

Really nice painting Sandra! All the German items tell a story. I especially like the stein, I have one just like it but I never thought of painting it!

HI Dana! definitely you should try a stein painting! with ocktoberfest month it should be a challenge in one of the challenge blogs! :) I am not a beer drinker but steins are sooo colorful!!! I want to paint one just by itself too!

Great job Sandra! I was especially drawn to the stein and how you handled it. It would have intimidated me a bit...

I'm so glad you left a comment on my blog, as it led me here to yours. Wowee, Sandra- you've got a beautiful, unique artistic voice and I'll be coming back to listen again.

thanks everyone! I worked a bit more on this and I am getting really happy with it the more "finish" I put on it.
