To Bee Or Not To Bee

That is the question! I stuck to watercolor and oil pastels only for this one. I decided to add the white flowers over the darker watercolor, the white actually stands out pretty good. This was done while I was away at a friends house and had limited art supplies on hand.

So, the “bee” in this painting looked really good at one point, then I over worked it and messed it up. It is difficult to stop fixing it, some times you have to let it be and remember, β€˜There is nothing either good or bad, but thinking makes it so.’ The important thing is to try and try again, after all, β€˜We know what we are, but know not what we may be.’ Sorry, I’m trying to be cute and clever here, sometimes things seem better in my head than in reality! 😁

I hope you are all having a great week! Stay creative, stay positive, stay alive!😊🌼🐝🌞
