Something Different

Not a scratchboard but a teddy bear rocking chair! 

This was bought for my grandson's 1st birthday last month by his maternal Grandmother, and my son happened to mention that "Mum" painted bears, well I used to which was a few years ago....I'm now past the teddy bear painting stage although I enjoyed painting them on presents to  give my neices and grandchildren at the time.  This chair has travelled about 4 hours by train to Brisbane so that I could paint it, and since then I have been waiting for the weather to be less humid so that it can be varnished before it has at least a 6 hour journey to "outback" Queensland.

I have started on another scratchboard and hopefully will post a picture in the next day or so.

What a fantastic transformation, the new bear looks so 3D. You have done a really great job, I'm sure your grandson will love it.
