Campari Barrel

"Good morning, I bid you."
"Are you talking to me?"
"Yes," said the Barrel Bee talking bee.
"Why are you stuck in a barrel like that?"
"Oh," said the bee, "She put me like that."
"What a predicament!
What a palaver!
Oh, how cumbersome!
Oh, what a disaster!"
"Yes," said the bee, "She just barrelled me up.
She just stuck me in here and now I am stuck."
"Oh, deary me!" said the chat chatting host.
"Buzz," said the bee, "Life is not perfect toast."

Hey Nikki, I personally think you shine when you work in this fairy tale mythical mode. Your painting is a good way to start my day.

Thank you Artby, have a lovely day.

Very well done. The yellows glow. The reds pop. And, both the ground and the background have wonderful, layered effect. I've got to start focusing more on your poetry, too, which is a lot of fun. I agree with artbymdp, a great way to start my day. I'd be interested to read about how/whether your writing and painting interact/affect each other from a process point of view.

Thank you DMSS. I think most of the time they come hand in hand. But with this one the painting came first.
