Yup, I wanna be a bear.....


our new theme at ART JOURNAL JOURNEY 
inspired me to this Mixed Media painting

If she were  a bear, she get to hibernate. She does nothing for six months. She could deal with that.
Before she  hibernates, she's supposed to eat herself stupid. She could deal with that too.

If  you're a bear, you birth your children (who are the size of walnuts) while you're sleeping and wake to partially grown, but cuddly cubs. I could definitely deal with that.
If you're a mama bear, everyone knows you mean business. You swat anyone who bothers your cubs. If your cubs get out of line, you swat them too. I could deal with that.
If you're a bear, your mate expects you to wake up growling. He expects that you will have hairy legs and excess body fat. Yup, I wanna be a bear.  - Author unknown ( found the text recently on FB )

I will also link to Moo Mania & More ( Favourite Pet) and she is 
No. 68 of 99 faces.

Wenn du ein Bär bist, hältst du Winterschlaf. Du tust nichts weiter, als sechs Monate am Stück zu schlafen. Damit kann ich fertig werden. Bevor du in den Winterschlaf gehst, musst du dich richtig vollfressen. Auch damit kann ich fertig werden.
Wenn du ein Bärenmädel bist,  dann kriegst du deine Babys im Schlaf (und die sind nicht größer als eine Walnuss) und wenn du aufwachst, dann sind sie schon richtig handfeste, knuddelige Junge. Damit kann ich ganz sicher fertig werden.

Wenn du ein Mama-Bär bist, dann weiß jeder, du meinst es ernst. Wer deine Jungen ärgert, bekommt eine gescheuert. Und wenn deine Jungen über die Stränge schlagen,  gibt es ebenfalls eine um die Ohren. Damit kann ich fertig werden.

Wenn du ein Bär bist, dann ERWARTET dein Partner von dir, dass du morgens grummelnd aufstehst. Er ERWARTET auch, dass du behaarte Beine und jede Menge Fett angesetzt hast.

Ja ... ich glaube, ich werde ein Bär!

  2. I know the story, I have it on a card I got from the States some time back. The bear girl is beautiful, and right now I wouldn't mind hibernating and feeding myself beforehand - perhaps I'd leave out the bit about birthing....Hugs, Valerie

  22. Neat painting, Susi. I love the text about the mama bear. It sounds familiar so I think I have seen it online before. What a true statement it makes!

  23. Very creative interpretation here Susi!

  25. Ha- I love it Susi!! And, really, is there anything you CAN'T paint? I think not.

  26. Love how you created a bear face out of your original...and the story you found is priceless. There are lots of things I would prefer to be at times, but for now I will just stick with myself. To change is just way too much trouble...hehehe. genie

  27. Oh my goodness this is hilarious!! I love it...I could be a bear too!! Hahaha!! Not growly enough though...Fabulous illustration...reminds me of the wizard of oz... And Susi you are a phenomenal leader and amazing influence!...just sayin...
