Meet the Bee Girl


I seem to work better under pressure. In my previous post I wrote of how I was stuck on a painting, unsure how to proceed, and gave myself two days to work on it. So I sat down yesterday, and let the painting go where it wanted to, and here is the result. I wanted to create art that mentioned the alarming rate of bees dying. I used to buy honey regularly from a woman until last year, their entire population of bees died, and they won't be replacing them. Anyway, that is the idea behind this painting. If you are wondering, that is not a sun on the right hand side, it is a big sunflower with a sad face, lol!

Now I am off to watch the Bachelorette, got to love reality tv :-D
