Here comes another post pulled from my archives!
It contains of a surprise birthday gift I made for my mum two years ago: a painting of her favorite animals – polar bears.
Back then I used to post my progressing paintings bit by bit, but I didn´t do it with this one because I didn´t want to risk that my mum found out what was going on. 😉
This is what I wrote on 1 Nov 2015:
In Love with Polar Bears!!!
Whilst working on my Degas-Painting, I was additionaly working on another painting in secret for my mum´s birthday. Because I couldn´t risk “being caught” by her, I didn´t post this painting from the first steps on, as I usually do.
My mum is madly in love with polar bears (well, who isn´t – apart from the seals, of course 😉 ), so naturally I wanted to give it a try, and paint these beautiful animals for her.
I´m happy to annouce that she loves it – no small feat considering that this is my first try on these animals and that she is a professional porcelain painter, who used to work for the KPM (that´s the “Königliche Porzellan Manufaktur” – the “Royal Porcelain Manufacture” in Berlin). I sincerely hope, you like it, too!:)
