PESTICIDE KILLERS


Another in the Bee Series paintings.  Haven't used the painted rice paper yet but thinking about how to incorporate that into another painting...

For this one, I copied some materials I got through the mail and then collaged the copied paper onto the watercolor paper around the painted bee. 

Not sure what to name it - so the working title is just Pesticides Kill.


If I am going to have a show using these, I need to start making some in other sizes.  Right now, the majority of paintings are fourth sheet (11 x 15 inches).  Maybe next one will be a full sheet or half sheet again.


I haven't had a migraine in 4 days.  For every day of migraine, the next day is also bad - I feel drugged (whether I took anything for the migraine or not) and achy from the tense muscles.  So 14 days so far this month and I am hoping October is better.

What a drag, I'm sorry you have to fight your way through such a trial, Rhonda.

This one really catches the eye, the text and the image are a nice combo. I like the look of the text starting to dissolve and run on the left.

Consider a show with all the same size paintings. It can look very cohesive with them all framed exactly the same. It makes quite a statement.

What E.M. said. Could be a good thing...also like a modular theme like honeycomb? I read on UK news that the US had placed a couple of species of bee on the endangered list for the first time. Is this true? So sad if it is. I can't find the reference now...

Thanks so much, Jennifer Rose, Alice Jo, Elizabeth and Lisa :) I'm glad you like this one and will be doing more soon. I almost hate to jinx it, but so far this month of October = no migraines just hints (taking a migraine med immediately seems to stave them off so far). I'm not sure about the endangered list, Lisa, but I imagine it could be so - I know the UK has done so, too, losing some species of bees. I'm going to learn more as I delve into this further.
