Inspired by the intricate beauty of the Carpenter Bee, this watercolor painting captures the strength and grace of this amazing creature. Carpenter Bees belong to the genus Xylocopa and are named for their nesting behavior of burrowing into hard plant material. Most carpenter bees are solitary with rare species living in small social groups with distinct divisions of labor. Painted in stark dark undertones with bright yellow highlights, this painting is a minimalistic scientific study.
My Insect Aesthetic collection seeks to draw our attention to the beauty of common insects, both in their visual aesthetic as well as their value within our ecosystem. There is so much beauty even in the things we naturally shy away from.
