5″x7″ acrylic, 2011. I really enjoy an opportunity to paint a new version of a stuffed toy I have encountered in the past. This classic Winnie-the-Pooh blanket-head sports a yellow blanket, and last year I had the pleasure of painting a similar Pooh whose blanket was pink. In this second of two portraits commissioned by Katie for her sons, Pooh rests against a blue blanket which is also a special favorite. This Pooh represents my favorite variation on the blanket-head theme, in that it appears to hold the blanket in its arms rather than having a blanket as a sort of totally limbless body! Adorable side-note: Katie’s son chose this pose for Pooh because it looked most like “her.”
