This shows the beginning stages of my next three paintings, themed with bees and blossoms.

One of my goals as Springtime approaches, is to incorporate bees into three collage/paintings measuring 11″x14″.  Above, you will see the beginning stages of my work using my blossom sketch, bees I’ve drawn and cut out pieces of paper.  I find as I walk outside and see beautiful pink blossoms on the trees and pink and yellow tulips popping, I want to incorporate those into my artwork.

Shown above are the blossoms I painted this morning as well as the background color and the collaged leaves.  While working, the thought crosses my mind, “do I want to apply any ink to these paintings, or just stay with embroidery for detail?”  Time will tell!

Have a great rest of your week!
