A Teddy Bears Picnic – Miniature Art In Wax
How a fun commission turned into an exhibition
I love to do commissions (I only do commissions in my style – no copies or reproductions) and I was delighted this month to be commissioned to paint a Teddy Bear which will be residing in a Dolls House Nursery.
The bear in question was Top Hat Teddy (see photo). The brief was to, and I quote, “Surprise Me”
The lady who commissioned me has been a collector of Art In Wax for a while now and wanted a new Teddy painting for her themed room, so I let my imagination have fun with the project and come up with this small collection of Teddy paintings …..
It was great fun to paint these cute little paintings and I kept getting more ideas, so after a couple of days in the studio I came up with this new selection which you can see here on display as a “Teddy Bear Painting Exhibition” in The Gallery which is my 1:12 Art Gallery, which I have spoken about many times on my blog ……
Each piece is an original miniature piece of Art In Wax
