Bee Yourself

"Bee Yourself"
7.5" x 7.5"
Pastel on paper
I saw this bee and knew I would have to try to paint him. I liked his furry thorax, the glint in his eye, the translucent shadow he cast on the petals, and his leaded glass wings.  Yup, this was a challenge I'd rise to, with thick pieces of chalky pastel. 

This is my offering for the weekly Challenge on Dailypaintworks.
