Far South

Far South, 8 x 8", ©2011 Kim Hambric

A bit of a departure for me.

New and improved(?) darkness?

20% more black.

I'm not sure where I was going with this piece.  Was I talking about those killer bees from Mexico?  Is this a primer on bees?  Was the whole thing just an excuse to use this cool map?  Looking at it now reminds me to go out into the garden and watch the bees before they are gone for the winter.

This piece is on Etsy.

So Kim -- what's the female/dress shape mean? is it you? your mom?

I particularly like the bits of text in your collages.

Kim, this is beautiful. I love the darkened bronze-ee tones. Friends of mine have bees and they are great to watch; I am drawn to them and the motifs that represent them.

This piece is rich and golden like honey. I don't think of it as dark at all.

One look at this and I thought about the queen bee. I love this.
