This painting is part of my metamorphosis series, I’ll be sharing more paintings from this series soon. Higher end fashion photography had a big influence on this work. I wanted the design to be sleek and sophisticated. Queen Bee is located in the middle and it’s clear she’s the focal point. I made her hair into a beehive bun to add some irony. The honeycomb along the edges acts as a vignette and brings the viewer’s eye to the center of the piece. I just love the warm honey colors throughout and I think trying to do something a little out of my comfort zone was fun.
