WIP Bear

Pretty much done, just need to define the eyes and snout, and add red berries.

Now I have the bear correct, but the colors are off, dang it! Well it

SUNflower Revisted

I wasn't very happy with my sunflower submission so I fiddled around with it I like this better.  Acrylics piled on acrylics on cardboard.
