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."

I am pleased to present the latest album from Laurel Zucker, along with Bart Feller and Jeremy Benson, to feature one of my paintings.

This recording is the "Friedrich Kuhlau - Flute Trios No. 2 & 3, Opus 86." 

The painting featured is entitled "In the Golden Afternoon." 

Magic Bear Art painting featured on an album by Laurel Zucker & Allison Franzetti!!

Night at the Opera album cover.jpg

My very first album cover!  Unbeknownst to me, the world-renowned flutist Laurel Zucker was an admirer of my work.  She contacted me in the summer of 2022 and commissioned me to do a painting for an album she was working on called "Night at the Opera." She said she wanted bold, colorful, and vibrant, with an image that evoked music, a piano, and a flute. 

It took me many weeks to come up with the idea, until I drove past a piano store in Williamsburg and saw their sign out front.  It looks very much like the piano on the album cover!  I am extremely proud of this work of art, as I know Laurel is as well.

I am flattered and honored that my artwork is being used to accompany such beautiful music, which is now available for you to download and listen to!

Laurel and I plan on collaborating on many more projects in the future, so stay tuned for more!

Looking Back

These past few years have been extraordinary ones.  There were several shows, exhibits, and my first time being published in international art magazines!

Please enjoy looking back at some of the highlights. I am sure there will be more magical adventures ahead, so stay tuned!
