Artist's Description

Oil on Canvas
I paint a lot of plants and flowers and insects. When I started in on one of these flower petals the bee was headed for, I though how much it resembled the bee’s wing, and wondered if insects are drawn to things that look like themselves. So I emphasized that. I also thought an insect may experience a myopia when it’s homing in on nourishment, and that all of the atmosphere and color and form around it might just kaleidoscope into a haze. So I painted that, too.
