Absolutely beautiful work Renee. I just love the wonderful fuzz you've created on the bee's back. And the way you have faded the background is so clever. From a distance there is no way you'd realise this wasn't a photo. Extraordinary!

Thank you so much, Karina. The ideas are often inspired by something another artist has done- like the colors in the beautiful face you painted.

I owe you so many comments Renee...got badly behind with my comment replies. This is SO delightful, lovely furry bee, my dad loved bumble bees and got us to stroke their furry backs, very gently, when we were children, so have loved bees ever since...will have to keep this one!

This one made me hear an Irish Jig for some reason. The composition is quite beautiful.

I loved painting this pic I let the paint flow along with the tears. Have you painted a place that reminds you of a lost loved one?
