WIP Peace & Love Panda

Work In Progress
First Panda of 2016

My first creation of 2016 is going to be a mink panda with the theme 
"Peace and Love"
which I believe is a wonderful hope for the coming year.
Of course, since I was lucky enough to have been a teenager during the 1960s,
Peace and Love is a theme that seems to have followed me through the decades.
The 1950s and early 1960s we lived through the Cold War.
The late 1960s and early 1970s it was the Vietnam War ... and on and on.
Peace and Love bears and pandas remains a recurring theme in my work ...
because I have not given up hope that someday we will live in a world of
Peace and Love.

When this Panda is finished it will be available on a First Come basis 
to any collector on my General Mailing list.
I will be sending out Available of Adoption emails as soon as it is completed.

This is a very pretty white mink collar (on a cashmere sweater)

This is a black fur coat. I don't think it is mink but is so hard to find black mink that my black and white pandas are extremely rare. The hairs have the same qualities and appearance as mink so it should make a beautiful panda.

These were the inspirations for my Peace & Love theme.
I am not sure what I will use or how I will use them but
it will be fun to play with ideas for this theme.
