As featured in edition 201 of 'The Teddy Bear Times'
This is an 18" x 22" Original Oil Painting of a Vintage Teddy bear with a wine box, a wine decanter, a candle and a glass, on Canvas Covered Board.
The following story has been painted on the back, along with my signature thumbprint:
'Meet Archie, short for Archibald... and then lengthened again to 'Archibalding' due to his ever-increasing loss of fur!
Born some time between 1935 and 1952 (he believes), Archibalding and I celebrated his possible 'somethingth' birthday over a glass or two of red...
"Of course one might prefer something a little more vintage, like me." said he.
"Oh yes", said I... "for some things merely improve with age."
"Like me?" said he...
"Oh yes", definitely like you!" said I.
And then we sipped wine together and talked about the beauty of all things old...'
