Just finished tonight after a week long hiatus. I feel like I relate to this little gal right now. 12x12. C&C always welcome.

This is wonderful. It's like the bee is looking at me and I want to say, "I'm right here, you're not alone."

Awe, the poor guy looks so lonely. He does look far from home.. and sad. I have no idea how I know what a sad bee looks like, but I am pretty sure you nailed it.

I think this really super Tai. It is unusual and that background is great.

Interesting background. I like the glow. Good work on the bee. Nice composition.

Thank you all for all the wonderful comments! I appreciate that! the whole process of painting this series has been one big learning experiment so it's nice to hear that other people like it, I can't always figure out for myself if it's good or not, ha. ChristyQ and Lavender Frost thank you for that! I was hoping I captured sort of that lonely, sadness and worry in the bee, I'm glad to hear you saw it :). trying to paint an insect in a way that will incite some empathy is tricky. haha
