Description Jerry's Bear is by Avonelle Kelsey (1931-2009) is a 32'x19' acrylic on cardboard and was inspired by a photograph in the newspaper in which a cat had cornered a bear up a tree. Avonelle found the whole thing amusing. She changed out the cat for a squirrel(?) and painted the scene for her grandson Jerry. This was in 2006. They were both ‘mature’ adults at the time. Have fun with it!

I am the daughter of artist Avonelle Kelsey (1931-2009).
Most sales go towards paying my massive art storage bills back home and helping Mom's legacy of creativity live on while I decide what best to do with the last of the artwork I rescued from her gallery before it was 'cleaned out'.
