Pandamonium, as I call him, is a vintage panda bear. He is as old as time itself; my time that is, and he was my first best friend.
He was given to me as a present the day after I was born, April 1st 1973, which makes him an April Fools present, that is unless it was given to me after midday. One wonders, and truthfully, one will never know. During my childhood, Pandamonium was by my side through thick and thin. Every birthday, every Christmas. Every snow storm, every thunder storm. You name it, Pandamonium witnessed it, and, comforted me during it.
As vintage panda bears go, I’m sure you can imagine, with such a long history between us, the thought of parting company with Pandamonium is unthinkable. No amount of money could begin to persuade me to say goodbye. Having shared so many adventures, monetary value is meaningless in comparison to the value of sentiment. A painting on the other hand. That’s a different matter. That’s me paying homage to my little buddy. Like portraits of historic figures of centuries gone by, forever celebrated in the minds of those who view them. He has earned this highest of creative accolades.
This particular vintage bear painting, Pandamonium, is painted in oil paint on a textured canvas. The canvas measures 21 x 29.7 cm, 8.27 x 11.69 inches, (or A4); my now signature support size for all my furture 2D artworks. It is initialled MG17 in the bottom right hand corner and is signed, titled and dated on the reverse. It will be the only original painting of Pandamonium ever to be painted thus sharing an exclusive rarity with Pandamonium himself.
Pandamonium’s portrait painting could very well be in your own art collection. It is certainly deserving of that exclusive privilege.
