Mittens

Today’s Doodlewash prompt is mittens, and I painted this warm, Christmasy pair. I like mittens better than gloves because they keep my hands warmer.

Hope you are still basking in the magical glow of Christmas, Hanukkah, and winter in general. Have a great weekend!

Polar Bear

Here is another arctic animal on our list, the polar bear. I’m sorry to say that they are on the “threatened” list – it would be such a shame to lose these beautiful creatures.

One of the most interesting facts about polar bears is that, unlike all other bear species, they do not den and hibernate over the winter. Other bears hibernate because of lack of food in the winter, but polar bears have access to their favorite foods all year long. The only exception is mother polar bears because they need to keep the babies warm. I’m all for being snuggly warm!
