This bee is part of a larger project I am working on.
It's a cold, gray, rainy day here and it cheered me up to work in bright colors for a change. Although I typically work in black and white - I'm hoping to add more color to my illustrations in 2022.
As I was working on this I was pondering the bee's consciousness and how it connects to each flower's consciousness, and ultimately all consciousness. As the bee is, so is the planet.
The concept that only humans possess consciousness is something I have always disagreed with. One only has to look deeply into the eyes of any animal or spend time in a forest among ancient trees to feel the consciousness we all share.
Until next time ...
