THE LAST ONE?



Started another bee painting.  

Not sure it's finished.

I tossed everything at it = gold fluid acrylic, sepia watercolor marker, white gelli pen, and the usual watercolor and stamping.














I think I still need to show those lines coming from outside to the center more - perhaps with a darker color or maybe the gold fluid acrylic.  And I probably will crop off some of the bottom.



















While at Shaker Village, we got some great photos of a beekeeping session going on so have some hives, some combs and the beekeeper, too - you know those will end up in another painting.












This is one sign you probably should obey!

I love this Rhonda. I like your color choice and personally I like the bottom heavy look to the painting. Bees are just so wonderful and so important to life. Great job!

Love this bee series - keep it up. I think the blue bottom is fine, kind of represents the larger world that bees are part of.

great piece in the series :) very shiny :)

and thanks for the photos of beekeeping. Even with the protective gear, I couldn't do that (have developed a bad bee/wasp allergy), would love to tho :)

This is a surprise work. Using patterns so beautifully to create the bee hive is so amazing. Great work.
