Yuri’s bears

Posted: November 4th, 2018 | Author: | Filed under: T Writes | Tags: , , , | No Comments »

The wonderful illustrator Yuri Vasnetsov was born in Russia in 1900. He studied modern art but found his greatest inspiration in traditional Russian folk art and his love of wildlife. Animals of all kinds spring to life in his drawings and paintings with much humor and sometimes a touch of dread. Bears were a favorite subject. Here are some terrific examples.

Mr. Vasnetsov was able to give all his animal creations a strong and distinct personality. Despite having lost a leg and trekking in deep snow, this bear seems to be looking on the bright side of life. It’s good to be home!

⌃Here are the famous Three Bears in a happy daytime woodland scene.

⌃And a different trio in a nighttime setting.

⌃This bear has found a  reluctant sailing companion, who also serves as a boat!

 

⌃And this painting shows Yuri’s love of bears is shared by all.

Summer camp champs

It’s that time of year again. All that’s left are memories and mud. We will treasure the friends we’ve made. This never-to-be-forgotten snail says a fond farewell to its summer camper counterpart at Audubon Sharon, a wildlife sanctuary of the National Audubon Society in Sharon, Connecticut. Until next year, forest friends!

This cat just got a whole lot luckier. He now has twelve lives instead of nine. Scratch his head and some of that luck will rub off on you!

Bonus: Today is also the Feast Day of St. Gertrude, patron saint of cats and cat lovers!
