Thank you so much for your comment Glennis. I thought it was sweet that the children's bear he was sneaking off with, matched his colouring perfectly!

He's irresistible, Andrea! I love the way you've captured the beautiful textures of both Teddies, and those huge expressive eyes, full of character. Beautifully done!

" Nobody will touch my teddy". Beautiful expression on his face, beautifully painted and altogether fantastic! The owners must be over the moon, Andrea.

Cute Andrea, he loves his teddy, gorgeous painting, love it :)

Teddy is just gorgeous Andrea!!

Thank you Seok, really lovely to hear from you again :)

Thanks Satu! Yes, the owners told me the whole family loves the portrait, which is really good to know. :)

Lovely comment Maria, thank you! :)

Thanks Chandra - lovely compliment! :)

Introducing Teddy - a very much loved family dog and the subject of a recent commission. Teddy was named after his love of teddy bears, so I thought it appropriate to paint him with one of his plush bear friends. With thanks to Teddy's family for the commission.
