Kamikazbees is the result of a thought I had while on the throne of seclusion. I was thinking of World War II, as I am usually found doing, then thought of bees coming in for a landing on a flower. I made the sunflower look like the Rising Sun flag (of the Japanese Empire). As I was painting, I thought of the title that would fit the action.

The painting itself is a little jejune, and so I may take a break from painting, so I can recharge my creative battery. It’s a sunflower, with bees beginning to land. I actually learned quite about bees during the research. The legs, antennae, and even the wings are a result of that intellectual dive. 

The vitals: 16×20, acrylic on canvas. There’s some texture there, but the photo doesn’t show it. May 2017.
