"Serious About Cereus"
Work In Progress
12" x 12" Oil on canvas
This is the beginning stages of a "serious" bee within the huge, lovely cereus cactus blossom; the cactus famous for and sometimes called 'the night-blooming cactus' . The bee is definitely serious about his job, but I have a feeling he was having a good time as well :-)
Below is my photo reference for this painting.
Every year in July these beautiful blossoms appear on a somewhat trailing vine-like branch of the cactus. I have many reference photos I have taken of them. This, however, will only be the second time that I have actually painted this flower. Below is the other painting.
