This commission was so darling to work on. Very simple, small, but with such meaning. My neighbor commissioned me to create this wee piece for her boss (who's more than that, a very close friend). Her boss will be leaving soon, out of state, for good and thats kind of hitting my neighbor emotionally. Yet, this woman got my neighbor through the hardest part of life, loosing her mom. The point of the bumblebee is that old saying that it shouldn't fly...it's wings are far too small for such a large insect...but it doesn't know that and believes it can fly...therefore it does.
This piece is 7x5 and will be matted in black to 10x8. Research sketches can be found on my sketch blog here.
