NEW Mixed Media Painting: True Calling

Original Painting (SOLD)
Prints available in my etsy shop.

when this character started to come into view, i already had the wings in place.

but when i saw a bear in the face, my mind immediately second-guessed it. i've learned though to let my imagination go and see what happens. and now i simply love this bear with wings.

to create this painting i used all sorts of supplies from my studio...vintage wallpaper, book pages, acrylics, paint markers, ink, shiva paintsticks and water soluble oil pastels.

i softened the entire background around the bear to allow the color of its body to shine. but once i had the soft background, the piece seemed to be missing something and i immediately thought of a moon.

as i painted the moon's face on vintage book pages, the painting seemed to get its story between the two characters.

this bear has been on a long journey to earn its wings, knowing that even when the outlook seems scariest there is always comfort in following your TRUE CALLING.
