painting stuffed animals is fun!

‘when i was younger’
oil on canvas
8″x10″

this stuffed monkey was my very best friend as a little girl- i brought him everywhere with me. i even chewed off a few of his fingers and also part of the banana that he held..

 

 

‘fusing imagination and memory’
oil on canvas
8″x10″

this painting makes me smile as if this bear’s extreme joy is viral. it is also a little unsettling somehow..

 

 

 

 

 

i love how emotionally animated these paintings turned out to be- carrying the foggy, magical memories of the years when we so much younger..
