# 188: Funny Face

6" x 6" oil on canvas

This was a fun challenge and a subject that I will be interested in taking on again. I am a little disappointed in the value contrast...but that will be something that I will work on another day.


  1. What a challenge! Reflections, distortions, and cast shadows … e-gads! Give me a few years, and I may muster the courage to try something like this. Or not. Yikes! A round of applause for you for pushing your own boundaries, Alice.

  2. of course I like all the distortions.
    (I'm rather fond of distortions)

    Nice patchwork of planes to describe the form of the bear, the glass reads fairly well too... and somebody should give the poor guy some flowers already!
    I hate to see a grown bear groan.


  3. This one seems centered on the emotional interplay of the bear and the vase. Interesting.
