Polar Bear Portrait

Polar bears typically roll around in the snow to clean their fur. Looks like fun, doesn't it!? Hope you enjoy these pics of my progress on the next portrait.

I also started on the fabric collage. Here are some pictures of my progress so far. I was particularly excited to use some recycled fabric in this one.

  1. I love the recyled skirt--it definitely looks like trees! And the motion is fantastic. You feel the movement. Your work keeps getting better and better!!
