I’m not sure if I’m finished with this painting, but I don’t know what else to do with it. I like the bird, but it doesn’t seem to belong to the same world as the background. I think there are a couple of different styles going on. My solution – move on to something else.
Here are the rest of the bees. There are a couple that I like and a couple that I’m really not happy with and one that’s sort of okay. I won’t tell you my preferences, you can make up your own mind. I’ve used up all the small canvases and it’s time to move on.
A long time ago I bought a bunch of 4″ x 4″ canvases, but I can’t remember why. They have been sitting here for years. I decided that I wanted to paint some bees and these little canvases are perfect. I plan to use them all, so more bees to come!
