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 much sadness and darkness in the world. I wanted to inspire smiles and joy with my work."
