My daughter, Lana’s, favorite stuffed animal has always been a pink bear since she could understand what she was holding. Her final addition to the Animals of Oz series focuses on the Bears of Bear Center in Oz. These are toy stuffed bears run by the Lavender Bear king and his adviser the Little Pink Bear.
On the back of the painting she wanted a quote by L. Frank Baum. It reads: “Time is given for us to be happy and for no other reason. When we waste time, we waste happiness.”

My daughter painted another in her Animals of Wonderland series. The Caterpillar was her focus this time, and she included her initials “LRP” in the hookah smoke. A quote by Lewis Carroll is on the back of the painting that says, “One of the hardest things in the world is to convey a meaning accurately from one mind to another.”
My daughter, Lana, returns with her latest painting. This is part 1 of her “Animals of Wonderland” series. Here’s her version of the Cheshire Cat and Breadandbutterfly.
Not bad for a ten year old.
