    When I was pregnant with my first child, a friend handmade this teddy bear for me. That made it incredibly special. The only other element in the painting that belonged to my son is the wooden puppet sitting on Theodore's knee. The old wooden blocks, spool and the car are from my extensive collection of antique still-life objects. I love painting children's toys, so the background fabric of letters and numbers was a wonderful find. The red pashmina, of course, is a dramatic spot of colour!

    This painting has been professionally custom framed.

    Shipping in a strong box to Canada or the U.S., via FedEx, is an additional $250. Shipping elsewhere would need to be calculated.

    This really speaks to me. Well done!

    Just an amazing work of art.

    Amazing watercolor.

    Beautiful, can feel the quiet and almost a cricket.

    Beautiful approach - I feel the chill from the snow but the hints of the red background peeking through provide a lovely, warm contrast that's so inviting.
