Painting of the Bears Of Sousceyrac

I am finally happy with the way the Bears of Sousceyrac turned out.  It took considerably longer than anticipated.  I actually went to some painter colleagues and got some feedback on this one.  It has been a while since I really pressed for harsh critique but it was well worth it as they pointed out some things that were right there under my nose like some troubling contrast issues and a bit of tangency.  Sometimes you get that blind spot and have trouble seeing what is right in front of you.  In any case, the actual name of this piece is “The Bears of Sousceyrac are simple and industrious”  I’m sure I’ll be posting about this again once we have our show which is at Hannibals on the second week in March.  There promises to be a lot of really excellent work at this show!
