Dulcinea & Honey Bees Painting

I just watched "The Secret Life of Bees" last week, and was very inspired! I read the book by Sue Monk Kidd, and really enjoyed it, but for once-I actually liked a movie more than the book it was based on. I do believe that bees have a secret, intricate life that we never really think about-amazing, really.
So, I decided to do a nature inspired piece, featuring a sugar skull beauty named, "Dulcinea". She's surrounded by lush flowers and her bee companions float around her. The honeycomb was a lot of fun to paint! I created her on raw wood with a rough bark edge, to add to the natural theme.
I listed her on eBay tonight and I hope she and the bees find a loving home! :)
Check her out here!
