Worked a little bit on the honey painting today (had icky chores that prevented my working on it a lot). Am in that phase of looking more closely at everything, started each part of the painting as though it were a little painting in its own right. There’s so much happening in the still life, such nuanced changes of color, subtle shadows, colors I cannot identify. There’s such an amount of potential stuff that it’s rather mind-boggling.
For some reason, I feel as though I forgot how to paint. Or like I must relearn it. Well, it’s none the less delightful for having become strange again.
The little honey pot has a bee and honey comb design on it. Am struggling with that. Right now the honey pot is winning, but it’s early in the fight. Wish me luck!

bzbzbzzzz (supposé etre le bruit d’une abeille)
keep working! I love the bee on top, economy of strokes, very sumi-e, in yellow.
I will, am just getting warmed up (and trying hard not to eat all the honey).
I really love this – scrumptious yellowness.
Yellow is a wonderful color, isn’t it? Like the sun (what the bees like!).
