Crazy lots of detail....

I just finished a painting/mixed media that I've been working on for a couple of years, a bit doodling  here and there.  I could never make up my mind if I liked it or not, and I still can't...  I do love my white birds that appear a lot in my art, and I love bumble bees.  These "B52" size bumblers somehow fly by divine grace. :-D  Monarch butterflies are so pretty so I had to have one in there too, and a heart on the tree because everyone knows that trees have heart.  There's an inspirational saying on the trunk that goes: "Sow the seed of Love, and you will be rewarded with the most incredible feeling of love dancing in your heart."  Those pearls of wisdom are by my spiritual inspiration Maharaji, wopg.org  The ultimate law is love, and everything in nature goes by that law (even predators.)  Maybe we're taking a page from them?  Things may be getting worse, but REALLY, they are getting better!  My cup is definitely half full...  :)

Below is an older painting but also with lots of detail.  I don't recall posting this one, but I had a similar painting, a larger one that sold for good money!  This is inspired by Island art, especially Haitian.  I love using the bright colors with the turquoises and the pinks. Wear sunglasses while viewing!

Keep on creating!  xoxo
