work in progress (Bee on a wild rose, study)

wip, 6x6", oil on canvas panel

Getting to know this little guy.  My brother took this photo of this sweet little bee, after it had taken a 15 minute nap on my husband's shoulder during which time we thought there must be something wrong with it.  We carefully maneuvered him onto a wild rose bush, when all of a sudden he came to and went right back to work buzzing around gathering pollen.  In hindsight it felt pretty special that he felt safe enough to rest on hub's shoulder and let us get so close.  If this one turns out like I'm hoping it will, I'll likely paint it again, much larger.
