Bears on the Chain...........COMPLETED !!

I have finally completed my Bear on the Chain!!

To reiterate what this project has been about, the town of Antioch, IL, secured seated, fiberglass Bear sculptures for local artists to paint.  On submitting designs for the Bears, a sponsor (local business, etc), chose the design they wanted to purchase.  The name Bears On The Chain comes from the chain of lakes in the area.
In June, the Bears (35 in all), will be placed in businesses and other establishments in the town for display to the public.  Then in Sept, the Bears will be auctioned off and the proceeds will go to the Antioch high school scholarship fund, Open Pantry and Save-a-Pet.

My bear was named, "Something Fishy's Going On."

Here he is as I got him, ................................and here he is finished.

This is so great! I love how you painted him and the fins and mask are wonderful. You are very creative! The message on his back is perfect, too.
