Catching a Buzzzzzz...........
Actually it was more like trying to capture the essence of the bumblebee.
but that just doesn't sound nearly as interesting :)
More and more practice. Today's subject was - you guessed it - the humble bumble bee. So, I spent the better part of 2 hours making bumblebees until I was satisfied. I was inspired by a poor little lifeless soul I found clinging to a board out on the deck. And the wonderful, lovable little bumbles painted by the incomparable Marjolein Bastein. My watercolor idol. And, finally.....
Tah dah! My first handmade greeting card made for a dear friend. Just a little white Dutch clover and a bumblebee. Sweet and simple. I hope it makes her smile. (And you too!)
Happy Weekend, friends xoxo
