I Love Bees

This is my first in a series of bee paintings. Bees are just so darn cute. This was so much fun to paint. Did you know....the average worker bee makes 1-1/2 teaspoons of honey in her lifetime, and, that one-third of the food we eat exists because of bees? That makes them pretty darn important, too. This 24" x 30" oil on gallery-wrap canvas is available on my website http://www.DianeMorganPaints.com

This is beautiful.
I had to look few times looks more like a photo. Great painting.
It was good to read about you in "American art collector".
I feel proud for you.

Thank you Irit. I can't wait to do more bees. And, I'm very excited about the American Art Collector article. They did a nice job.

VERY nice! I love bees and am always happy to see them buzzing around our lavender and rosemary. They are truly an important part of our lives.

I love this! The color palette is outstanding! I love bees too. They so often get a bad rap.
