Little Snow Bear 8x6 Inches, Oil Painting of Stuffed Polar Bear

$100 & $10 S&H

The holidays (oooops, I meant Holidays) are a time when I feel very sentimental.  I love all the decorated homes and the lights on the trees.  I remember as a child my parents driving all through town to see the lights with me, and my mother teaching me to sing Christmas carols with her (in harmony, OK?).  So after my Mom passed away 16 years ago my Dad used to have me spend a day with him every week, and we'd just do stuff together.  The first Christmas we were ordering a floral gift for one of his friends and I spied this little stuffed polar bear at the florist's of all places - I LOVED him!  And, of course, my Dad bought him for me.  I left him 'out' in the living room for 2 years straight.  He looked All-Season to me!  Well, now, to protect him, I wrap him up in January (OK, March) and put him with the Christmas decorations.  It always makes me so happy to see him when I start to get the Holiday spirit!

  2. Little Snow bear is just beautiful and chock full of special memories for you. Very special indeed! I especially like the soft shadow on Mr. Bear and how delicately you handled that. Happy Holidays are here friend!

  4. Oh Kelley, I really love this one, but even more I love the history behind it. Dads and daughters have such a special and eternal bond. I too, treasure memories and items my dad gave me so I totally get the feeling and I know you will have many more happy unwrappings of your bear. Nice painting, too!
