Art: Merry Christmas, Pickle Bear by Artist Vicky Knowles
This painting was created for  Create Your Own Ugly Holiday Sweater - the "exhibit that never was."   That exhibit was canceled 2/3 of the way into the month, leaving Pickle Bear in limbo (as if he doesn't have it hard enough already).  Since he didn't get to properly appear in the exhibit for which he was created, I'm entering him in "Better Late than Never."

Merry Christmas, Pickle Bear

Poor Pickle Bear.  He was so excited to have been invited too a holiday party (finally) to which he was instructed to wear his best holiday sweater.  It was a tough decision, but he picked the one with the moose licking a candy cane next to a giant snowflake, he thought this was the most festive since the moose has a rhinestone eye and there's glitter everywhere!  And nothing says "Christmas" like a moose with a rhinestone eye and glitter!  And did I mention that Pickles made the sweater all by himself??   

Now I know you're wondering why Pickles looks so sad - well he's just discovered that this is really an "Ugly" holiday sweater party and he's worried that others will think his sweater is ugly and make fun of him!  But in true Pickle Bear fashion he soldiers bravely on, with a smile on his face despite the tears in his eyes.  And look!  There's Lunchbox, giving Pickles and his sweater two thumbs up!  Now we know everything will be alright :)
