Welcome to Magic Bear Art-Whimsical and festive art by Michael Jones.
"When I started to paint, I decided not to worry if I was "good" or not. I just knew I wanted to create. And I wanted my paintings to be colorful, vibrant, happy, and magical. There was....and is....so much sadness and darkness in the world. I wanted to inspire smiles and joy with my work."
Thank you to everyone who came out to the Williamsburg Artists Group Spring Art Show!
I sold quite a number of cards and prints at the show!
Collectively, we brought in $500 for Habitat for Humanity. We are honored and proud to support such a worthy cause!

Focus on Art
11x14 watercolor and acrylic on paper
This is the second watercolor painting I ever created. And it is probably my favorite. It captures everything I want to convey as an artist. Bold and vibrant colors. Whimsy. Magic. Happiness. If I saw this painting for sale, I would buy it.
At my most recent art show, this was the one piece that received the most comments from people. I even sold two prints of it!
While this is mainly watercolor, I did go in with my acrylic paint pens to add in some more detail and definition.
Looking at this painting makes me incredibly happy, and I hope it does the same for you.
For those of you who missed the podcast, here is your chance to see and hear Cori Fonville Foster's interview with me. Hope you find it insightful, inspiring, and enjoyful!
