Self Portrait: The First Image

Bess, age 8, is my first piece. This image is about 4'x5'. Bess is my oldest character. Beside her sits a teddy bear. In Native American stories the bear replaces the lion as the king of the beasts and is referred to as grandfather. A bear also symbolizes resurrection because it hibernates, and then wakes in the spring. It is my self portrait.
