Continuing on the Honeybee theme... This is an 8 x 8 study which again grapples with the challenge of depicting bees in flight. I am working in acrylic - trying to mimic the effect of encaustics, which is a challenge in itself! Would love to be working in real beeswax (produced by my own bees, of course!) but that is not practical for what I am hoping to do here... So - I am calling the project "faux-caustics")...
I am starting to explore imagery for a project on the subject of Honeybees. As a beekeeper, I have long been fascinated with bees and concerned about the dangers that face their survival these days... Now I have to figure out how to express those thoughts and feelings in my work! A challenge, but it is going to be a fun journey!
This is the first study that captured the ethereal quality of bees in flight for me. Baby steps.... but a start!
This is my first effort at managing my website myself... a monumental task for me! But I also want to make this a current and vital tool, which means being able to update it and alter it frequently and as the whim hits me. Stay tuned to see how this unfolds, and to follow my blog!
Welcome to my space to share my ruminations, inspirations and experimentations...
- as well as new work, information on my process and assorted random thoughts...
