Another fabulous item donated to the EFA shop is Sunny Day Polar Bear by kyeliza.
This is an original 8" x 10" oil painting of a polar bear who is enjoying a sunny day.

Here is a little bio by kyeliza:

"I am 28 years old and have been creating since I was a wee one. I can't imagine not having art in my life and I am constanly absorbing images, colors and inspiration from everything around me.After majoring in art in college, I started painting my dog and my kitty, eventually moving on to pet portraits for other people. I have continued painting peoples' pets, but also work on small, brightly colored creature paintings (like this polar bear!), larger monster series and any other projects that may strike my fancy. I donate 10% of pet portrait sales to http://saveasato.org, because they are the lovely people who connected me with my dog, a rescue mutt."

Thank you, kyeliza!
