I never intended for this to be a blog about Teddy but I had to post this one today. I follow several quilt related things on Facebook. One is “Mark Lipinski’s Fan Page!” Today one of my quilting friends saw a post on his page and commented ” That looks like Tim Latimer’s Teddy!” I went to the post to see what she was talking about….here is what I saw
and this was the text that Mark added to the post.
ARTspiration: Artists or art that turns me on and feeds my muse! Like it or dislike it, what about this art inspires your own art or creativity? This piece is called “Dog on a Quilt.” The artist is award winning California artist R. Bitton who has showed extensively for over 20 years at art shows and galleries all over California.
Do you remember the post about Teddy being a celebrity? (see it here)
it featured this picture
It is hard to ignore the similarities! the only difference is that the artist decided to add some red to the quilt.
Lets see them side by side
I have not been able to find any more information about this artist or how the artist decided to paint Teddy but I would love to hear any information about it!
Here is Teddy again …I took all these pictures quilt a while ago (Feb 1012) when I first finished the Denim Quilt
Tim & Teddy
I just found out from a reader that the painting is for sale on eBay right now
Hi Tim, Besides doing art for over 30 years and participating in over 500 art shows, I now also have an on line book business and I sell many quilting books, which are so popular now.
So my customers send me all sorts of pix of quilts they made etc. I don’t really know these folks, I just communicate with a few grateful customers who send me “thank you” emails. That’s how I got the picture of teddy originally.
Since I love both quilts and dogs, I did a quick sketch. I do these little sketches as a warm up in the morning, before I start on a serious big painting. I hope you saw the photo album of my big painting and appreciate my art (I did and very much like her work) See it here
