Doing this particular commission was a blast but hard. I didn't want it to be cheesy or tacky...... So I struggled finding the right idea of how to depict a "Bear Family." But as always at the last moment inspiration and ideas flowed like pure intelligence. Its an incredible experience, something I LIVE for. I got the BEST reaction out of the woman who requested it as a Christmas gift for her sons family!! Thank you Allison Thaut for commissioning me, and for loving it! I was so nervous I wasn't going meet her expectations, for such a unique request.
