Hi there!
This is a little war time bear named Tillie. Although she
is a bit scruffy and has one ear that is a mess she has the
most wonderful sense of humor. I enjoy her so much because
every time I look at her,she makes me smile.

This is #4 in my limited edition of Teddy Bear Portraits.
He is one of my Mohair bears with soft leather pads and
glass bead eyes. I call him "little Sneezle" because he
is only 5.5" tall. He loves to sit on the window sill
and watch the birds.

I met Bonnie and her master walking on a street in my neighborhood.
I stopped to ask about her and see if he would allow her to pose a bit
for me. He was so proud of Bonnie. He just beamed as he lovingly held
her in his arms.

"Crookshanks "
oil on canvas - 8"x8"
animal art

Lately I have been inspired by the Harry Potter stories.
When I read the books, I would often get my own visions
of the characters, beasts and pets. This is my rendition of
Hermione's cat, "Crookshanks". A fabulous orange Persian.
I always have thought that cats are all about the eyes!
