This is a brand new bear painted here at my home studio at Arabia Mountain USA. A brand new bear on an old piece of wood.
This used to be another painting and before that it was a piece of wood I found along the fence in some peoples yard in Atlanta maybe around 2014.
I gave it some rough treatment and sanded it and burned on it with a blow torch and a shot at it with an old .22 rifle. I just wanted it to know I was serious about make an art.
14" wide x 15" tall x 3/4" thick plywood.
Wired on back for easy hanging. House Paint. Mirrors on the cheeks. Sealed for a lifetime of fun and smiles.

Each Bear is hand-painted by me, Mr. BlackCatTips, and each are unique. I use no templates, other than the basic size, and they are all special in their own ways. No copies or duplicates — they are all individuals with their own special characteristics, much like ourselves.
