I love this grizzly! He was happily scratching his back with the slightest smile on his face! I went through lots of ideas as to what to add to this one. I finally stumbled on a stamp I have of “Where the Wild Things Are”. I kept wanting to poke humor at my “scary” bear, so I thought that image was rather suitable. Then I added a wine bottle cap because I’m sure my grizzly was saying “Rrrrr!” (again, in his ever ferocious tone). Those who know me know that I’m a big Winnie the Pooh fan, so naming the painting “Silly Old Bear” was a no brainer. Although for some reason I wanted to name him “Francis”. Wasn’t there another children’s book about a bear named Francis? Or was he a badger??
