American Folk Art Sailor Teddy Bear with Heart Original Painting Art on Wood 1985
This wonderful American folk art painting on a wood panel was done in 1985. It is signed on the back --- Clem’s Barn ’85 GN NY. The bear is painted on a large shaped pine panel. He is wearing a sailor shirt, and he is holding a big red heart. The heart looks quilted, with a blue dot in each corner of the diamond shaped sections. The artist has depicted the bear’s fur with a “squiggly” / combed technique (with two shades of brown).
Lean the bear against a wall, as we have, or you can put a hook or a wire on the back to hang it as wall décor.
This is a great work of original folk art for a teddy bear collector. This Great Neck ( Long Island ), New York bear will be a focal point of your teddy bear decor and collection.
The pine wood panel is 11“ wide at the base. It is 26“ tall at the ears. The panel is 1/2“ thick.
It is in good / pre-owned / vintage condition. There are some rubs / abrasions / scratches from age / handling.
