Peek a Boo Learns to Swim

"I had previously painted a blue Peek a Boo Bear and he was so well received that I just had to create another version of him.  I came across an image of a swimming bear and just fell in love this his expression in his eyes.  Some say he appears to have a look of fear, however I see that initial expression of fear but his look reminded me of my son’s first swimming lessons as a child.  That initial look of fear and uncertainty, evolves to concentration, then joy, as he realizes he is actually enjoying this new experience in the water.  That is what I was drawn in the eyes of the Blue guy."
