Blessed Beltane

as Beltane is upon us
the half way mark between spring equinox and summer solstice
this painting came to life
a man and his kin bear
most likely because the bears around here have woken
they now walk  the earth with us
daily i think of them

Lovely Spring to you ~


  1. The greens and blues of your bear's fur are rich and yummy!

  2. J'aime beaucoup les ours...
    J'ai peint un ours brun, un ours blanc et un panda !...
    Une belle peinture que la vôtre.
    Une belle union que l'homme et l'ours... si seulement tout le monde pouvait penser la même chose !
    Gros bisous et joyeux 1er mai.
