Montybear, the painting

Cathleen commissioned me to do a black and white portrait of Montybear using the photo from the woodblock collage. I can see the reason for the bear reference. He's got a powerful head and from the body I could see in the photo he probably weighs at least 80 pounds. I don't know what it is about this image but it looks like a person sitting for a formal portrait. Maybe I should have added a jacket and tie. He's a little hairier than Cathleen's other kids.
