Elegant Bears


This is my entry for Mrs.Nesbitt's ABC Wednesday a blog that has created a community of caring people. To read other "E" entries, click here.







I originally drew this pair of bears to illustrate my poem Ceremony, and it was printed as a background to that poem in the anthology Roots and Tendrils.


Then my son wanted a few more dancing bears for a poster he was making for the Waltz Night that he and his dear wife (dear to me too), Kristin, put on at monthly intervals. These were rather quickly done (while lying on my bed with the drawing pad balanced on my knees).


And this is the final result.

How very talented you are, and how nice to share that talent with your family.

Elegant, indeed! Where did we ever come up with the idea of dancing bears? Like your drawings and the final poster for dance night.
