A days work at the studio


Well I was back busy working in the studio today and look what I finished for the teachers art show. Both are 11"x14" mixed media pieces. Bee happy is the first of a series that incorporates bees as subject matter somewhere in the artwork. My inspiration is drawn from the carpenter bees that have been nesting in our porch ceiling and embracing the thought that I am the queen bee. The next piece,Together, side by side, is a tribute to the days of my childhood when my sister, mother, and I would go walking around the neighborhood signing the song "side by side." Happy memories of long ago, but still near and dear in my heart.
