Please take a few minutes to view some of the new pages that I added to my blog today.  At the top of my website, I’ve added pages that showcase the following three themes: Munsey and Boda Merchandise – Artwork Gallery and Photography.

 

 

The cubs had a great time playing with their toy’s in the pool located at the JP Adler Kodiak Bear Exhibit.

Of course they enjoy playing with their all time favorite toy, the fire hose!  They played with the fire hose for at least two hour’s today!

This is Sara, one of the newer staff members at Marshfield’s Wildwood Zoo and she’s delivering a selection of fruity ice bear pops as a snack for Munsey and Boda to enjoy during the summer months.

The boys love these fruity ice pops made with fresh fruit that’s been blended and frozen in a freezer a few few days before being served to Munsey and Boda.

It appears that it takes the cubs a bit longer to eat the frozen fruit compared to the regular fruit and veggie’s they get for snacks.

Below is a link to a video of Munsey and Boda playing in the pool at Wildwood Zoo in Marshfield Wisconsin.

I look forward to visiting the campers in the near future, when stop in at Wildwood Park and Zoo this Summer.  I look forward to sharing my knowledge of Munsey and Boda  the two Kodiak bears.

I’d also like to thank all the other guests that have come to my art studio this weekend!  I was thrilled to have returning guests!  We chatted about the conversations we had last year and learned more about each other during their second visitation at the studio.

The artwork showcased at the iMAGiNETHAT Art Studio ranges from abstract paper sculptures, charcoal drawings and original prints and collages to more realistic compositions of feathers, leaves and dragonflies.

There are original prints and mixed media that represent the more tech savvy personality. These compositions are created from segments of computer hardware and have titles that captures the essence of  the materials and/or process of which they are created from, for example; Netscape and Etched In Time.DSC_0106

If you love bears, I have some wonderful greeting cards, coasters, photographs and photographic books of  Kodiak bear cubs.

There is no question that I enjoy experimenting with new materials when creating my artwork, the image above is just one small sample of the result from my adventures through experimentation.

My ability to experiment in a creative fashion is demonstrated in how I’ve chosen to display some of my artwork.  I discovered that this fishnet reflects my nautical themed studio setting , as well as serving a fun and functional way to display my smaller original prints.

A few new items this year include sun catchers created from handmade lampworked beads, funky stick fish with names like Sushi  Sue and Wall-eye Sam.  There are also some functional fishy’s titled Shell-Shocked (which will reflect your inner beauty) when gazed into while hanging on your wall.
