That's the name we so affectionately call our two year old's favorite companion. Not very creative I know, but it works. He carries this critter around with him almost everywhere he goes and, of course, "Bear" can't go to sleep without Evan nestled beside him. Or vice-versa. We believe life would end as we know it if anything happened to our furry friend.
Since I thought "Bear" would be a great subject for a painting, I had him sit for me over this past weekend while I painted his portrait. I asked Bear's best friend for his critique and he blurted out alot of jibberish along with some finger pointing...so I(we) think it turned out quite well.
