bee "painting" -you make my world- revisited

bee and honey painting

This 'painting' is quite changed from when I first showed it to you. It's one of those paintings that just keep talking to me... whispering I'm not done... I'm not done...
I think though, that finally it is.
The various elements were added over a period of several weeks, the last being the 'honey' dripping down.
This 8x10 mixed media and 'a little copper' (earlier post) are at Tabby's Treasures, 355 Talbot St., St Thomas, which is the gift shop attached to the St Thomas animal aid.
I'm an animal rescuer from way back, all of our dogs and most of our cats have been rescues. So I'm delighted to use my talent to help support this work.

As you know our upcoming Fall colour and Studio tour is a fundraiser for the Breast Cancer Society. The planning is going well, more artists and 'attractions' are coming on board.

Sadly, our dear friend, and founding member of the Dorchester Artist Network, lost her struggle with the dread disease on Saturday Spt 5th.
Sandy Greason, was both feisty, and kind. She was a great advocate of the arts, and of the community. Every one knew Sandy, and everyone loved her. She was active and doing the art she loved right up until days before the end. She never complained, and always had a kind word of encouragement. We were privileged to have her with us, for oh so brief a time, Sandy was in her 60th year. Sandy we will always love you, and miss you.
