Blue Teddy and a Friend

For years I worked in the wallpaper industry and was often called upon to paint teddy bears for kids wallpaper borders. 

I still have a few models left from those glory days. 

The handmade blue teddy was acquired at a garage sale. He attracted my eye because of his odd coloring. The little bunny bear came from a flea market. The tiny chair was found years ago in a small Toronto gift and stationary store.

To create these photographs I used Kim's Warm Sun and Autumn Burst textures (with a few modifications of my own) in a soft light blending mode. To see other pictures using Kim's textures please click the link: Kim Klassen's Cafe Blog.
