painting: honeybee on verbena

In honor of National Pollinator Week, I'll be posting a new bee painting each day this week. Today's bee is featured on verbena bonariensis, a favorite of bees & butterflies alike. Super easy to grow, & reseeds FREELY. Will grow up to 6, 7 feet tall with small clusters of flowers, and almost no foliage. (painting 5 x 5", acrylic on plywood)
