I started out wanting to paint an image with teddy bears in Santa suits holding a 'Merry Christmas' sign. Along the way, I decided to try posing the bears for the 'M' of Merry, and liked it so much I wound up doing all of the letters out of teddy bears (and later on, did the rest of the alphabet, too!) These happy little teddies in their festive red and white outfits are posing to represent the letter 'A'. Use this 'A' as an initial to stand for any first or last name that begins with A. All of the other letters of the alphabet are available, too! This design is available on a wide variety of gift and apparel items and in every letter of the alphabet, all customizable to add your own name!
