Woolly Bear

Woolly Bear (4″ x 4″ oil on raised panel)

I’ve always thought woolly bears were cute and of course like most of us, tried to predict the severity of the winter by looking at the width of its colour bands. This was a bit of a challenge – how do you make a creature without a face engaging? Well, I made it as fuzzy as possible and I think it works!
