Happy Valentine's Day Bears 8" x 8" oil on panel

Ever wake up in the morning and feel like- I have to paint bears!
Well I did today.
So I searched for this picture online- it was a sweet thing to attempt but jeez- not easy- white bears?
The little guy on the left looks like a sheep and I cannot make it look like a bear for the life of me!
Must be because in a month I am going to be painting sheep in Hawaii....bbbaaahhhh
Anyway I hope everyone has ( had by the time you might get this) a great Valentines day and gets lots of chocolate and kisses and hugs.

So cute! I think you just need to move the little sheep's nose UP a bit (and after that look at his ear to see if it needs to come DOWN a little bit). I take my hat off to you for even attempting this - and making it work! I love the sentiment, too. We had, as usual, an anti-valentine's day, but the day BEFORE I got roses and a wonderful meal out in Prov. ;)

I think Kelley is right about the little bear. The Mama is just great as are the flowers..
I got roses too.

I agree- its about the placement- I have a tough time with the noses and ears...
