honeybee & rose - detail of "Queen of the Night Tulips" painting

SOLD
Detail of "Queen of the Night Tulips" which is shown in the following post. As the resolution is always compromised, the full image does not even reveal both honeybees, so I chose to show you at least one with glistening wings and pollen on the hind legs.

This is stunning! You do beautiful work!

Thank you so much, Ulla! This little honeybee is one of two in the painting. It's a little bit challenging getting intricate details on such a textured surface as canvas (which is why my "Little Gems" are on masonite) but I hopefully captured the glistening wings and even the pollen! Jeanne

Thank you so much, Marina! I truly appreciate your lovely compliment! For me, details in painting are like icing on the cake...something to be savored and appreciated! Jeanne
