The Gyles Brandreth Teddy Bears Collection
In September 2016, Ann La Mar (my friend from Yorkshire and reporter at “Go Teddy!”), Truffle McFurry (my teddy bear son) and me went to visit the Bear House at Newby hall, North Yorkshire, UK. The house is exhibiting the private Teddy bear collection of English TV celebrity Gyles Brandreth. Before going there, I had contacted Gyles to ask him for the permission to paint his bears. I quickly received following email:
I’m sure our bears would be honoured to be painted by you!
When you know when you might be going to Newby Hall, get in touch with one of the team there to discuss the details. The Bear House isn’t open all year round. Send an e-mail to firstname.lastname@example.org and take it from there.
I look forward to meeting Truffle too!
With bear hugs and best wishes,
I was immensely happy about the kindness of the answer!
So we went there and I painted since then many of his Teddy Bears. Truffle even wrote a long article about our visit at Newby Hall and was published in the international magazine “Teddy Bear Magazine”
Here are some of Gyles’ Teddy Bears I painted
“The Little Ballerina And The White Prince”
“Kaiserin Sissi And Kaiser Wilhelm”
“Prince William And Kate And Kids”
“Queen Elizabeth And Prince Philip”
All my Teddy bear paintings are available directly online as Giclee print in many different dimensions, on paper, canvas or metal, and also as greeting cards.
