The Magic Pond

  Welcome to IceBear’s world, a place where imagination rules, wonder and curiosity are the order of the day. 

Translation and meaning is often left entirely to you the viewer; interpret and take away from any individual piece  

of art what you will. Some will find magical beings, spirits 

or imaginary creatures floating through, others will find nothing but the most obvious. There is no right or wrong.

But we have been told by many collectors that even years after living with a painting, one day when they look at it, 

they find things  they have never seen before. Perhaps it is 

a trick of the light, a shadow, a fleck of dust, but that original sense of wonder is recreated, and we receive happy posts of  

thanks and appreciation!
