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.

Great joy makes my heart sing. When my heart sings I turn to wings as a source of inspiration. I adore wings, having witnessed them in a near-death experience. I titled this Gabriel, but it could be called a different name just as easily.  Joy of this sort transcends...   

When I painted this series I painted black borders that wrapped around the sides on some of them.  It made for a very cohesive look when exhibited together.

Thank you so much for today.
