I heard a radio commentary this morning. It was about searching for good news in a dark time. The commentator, a former journalist, looked in all the usual places, but finally found her cheering thought in a Pew Research Center story about reading.
73% of Americans read a book this year! And they actually seem to prefer reading on paper.
I found cheer in that too, and continued work on my Baby Bear Reads a Book ornament series.
As with other multiple image projects like summer postcards, I grid my paper with painter’s tape. This time I measured out small 1 3/8″ x 2″ rectangles and drew Baby Bear reading a big, fat book in each opening.
Then I paint them-layer by layer, one by one.
Each one is kind-of the same and one of a kind.
Then I cut the sheets up,
Stick them in little silver frames
And hang them from the evergreen tree.
I’ve made a few extras and, if you’d like one, or a different Baby Bear 2016 ornament, I’m selling them in my Etsy shop
