Stage 5 of “The Tour of Teddies”.
As my Mom saw Comtessine Tivolie, she fell in love with her at once, and wanted to know if Tivolie has got sisters and brothers. She said:
“She is an aristocrat, you know, she needs some aristocratic company!”
And there she was, my 92 year old Mom, searching the net for Tivolie’s relatives! She found a lot, and eventually she ordered for me 4 Sisters for Comtessine!
I am not sure I will have time to paint them all, so many other bears have been waiting for their turn to be immortalised for a much longer time.
But here is “Comtessine Coccinella”, wearing a Lady Bug costume. All my Comtessines are in disguise by the way… I wonder if they are a bit embarrassed to be aristocrats… Coccinella is at our home in good company with some others from her kind… I am not sure they are Ladybugs too, or some extraordinary mutation, but my Comtessine feels very well among them all!
