Dream Animals: Robert Bissell

I can't think of anything to say that would add to this visual treat of Robert Bissell's dreamy animals except that I feel like he captures the world as I want to see it! These three paintings can be purchased as a print, so you may find yourself wanting to hang one on your wall :)

  9. Bissell, too reminded me of William H. Beard. I have a small Beard print, "Bears Dancing",that is framed and has been on my bedside table for years and years under the glow-in-the-dark moon ball (: In 2002, he finally received a tombstone (it was unmarked until then) that has a brass bear lolling over the top. Fantastic!

  10. How cool, Catherine. Now I'm wondering why I don't have a dancing bears print :)
