    Yay for Goodreads, for community reviews There s no way to evaluate books like this objectively Professional critics wouldn t really have much of value to say here Even though some of my GR friends rate this lower, I love it and highly recommend it.And that s the theme of the book Everyone can be an artist, even if the only ppl who appreciate their work are themselves Bear , or posthumous coffee mug designers Van Gogh And everyone can be a critic.And in my case, since I happen to love D.B Johnson and often enjoy Pinkwater, I loved this book I love it even than The Dot, which was a darn good book I love the gray and proper and judgemental gentlemen, and their fate I love Bear s self confidence and zest, and his neck piece even though I don t know if it s meant to be a tie, a scarf, or nothing in particular I love the development of the painting.I wish ppl would read this book and also discover for themselves the joy of creativity.

    I still remember being told in second grade that I drew the sky wrong When I went home and told my Dad that the sky was supposed to be a big long rectangle of blue in the sky colored in corner to corner, but mine was wrong, he said not so Mine, a small frenzy of blue, was just fine for a sky I figured since he was an artist, he probably knew best so I just kept on drawing skies my way So far, it has worked out well.This bear and my Dad would understand each other.

    A nice sentiment message here that we should not allow others to judge our artistic talents pursuits but should enjoy the process and creation for ourselves However, I think it was better executed by Peter Reynolds in his book such as

    Absolutely fabulous The text is matter of fact straightforward and it conveys a great sentiment the artist s own interpretation is enough to make any artwork worthwhile A bear can be a painter and he can paint whatever he feels like and see whatever there is in the picture without being told by others that he can t paint or what his artwork means And the ART in this book is unusual, for sure The contrast between the gray scale color scheme of the three characters and the vibrant multi colored painting keeps the readers focus on the real protagonist of the story the painting, in progress and in its final state I love how the bear s scarf gets progressively messier, with colors until it s completely covered And of course, the page where you must turn the book around to see the final picture from bear s point of view of a bear that is embedded within the autumn honey tree, cool stream, hollow log, field of flowers, and the two gentlemen s hats is such a beautiful and breathtaking moment The color scheme reminds of of Kandinsky and Klee in their modern, abstract style The final image of bear sleeping in the hollow log his own creation engulfed by the snow is the perfect and calm end note to a rigorous story.

    Bear s Picture Hardcover by Daniel Pinkwater Sometimes its believing in yourself is all you need Bear is drawing pictures, and two fashionable gentlemen come on the scene of bear drawing, they can not believe their eyes, they can not see the masterpiece before bear s eyes They critic they down play they reprimand but they don t see the possibility or change their perspective Hint turn the picture upside down And when reading to kids point out the obvious.
