Something About You Theme #277

Posted in Photography on September 14, 2011 by paintedmeadows

Well, something that most of you don’t know about me is that I am a bear artist.  I make collectible teddy bears that are fully designed and handmade by myself.  This little clown bear is less than 2″ tall not including his hat.  He is fully jointed so his arms, legs and head move.  I sell them on the web and have been making them for almost 16 years.  My bears range in size from 1/4″ tall that fits in a lipstick tube to 29″ tall.  I have bears in museums and books around the world but most of all I love creating them!!  You can see some more of my bears and other critters on my website at  My fall project is do redesign my website and do all new photography of the bears.  My bear christmas ornaments will come out soon.   So that is “Something About Me!”.  This photo was taken with my Lensbaby composer using the single glass optic and a macro lens.  Then I used PSE9 and Topaz Adjust to apply the psychadellic (sp?) filter.  Sorry about all of the spelling errors.  Still not fully functioning.
