12" x 16" Oil on canvas
I had started this bear in Ingrid's class but did not have time to finish it there. I thought it would be a perfect gift for my co-worker Nina, pregnant with their first child. As Nina and Kevin did not know the sex of their baby, I had to wait for the baby's arrival, a (healthy boy they named Malek) before I could put the baby's initials on the block. Their last name begins with a "W". As it is an oil painting, the problem was getting it done in time for it to dry before the shower! Nina said this would be the first decoration for Malek's room!
