this makes me want to hear the story as to how the bird and bear became friends and about their adventures together.

Hei Gennine. I borrowed a picture from your blog. It is about the book by Carla Sonheim. I have bought the book and it is such a great book. Nice interview about you and your beutfiful work. So inspiaring! I believe it is important to play when you draw and this book gives you many ways to do it. So great!

This bear is looking like he has the reflection of the Northern Lights to change the colour of his fur! This is a sweet image. In friendship, sometimes we are the bear and sometimes the bird. :)
