Melissa's Big-Bottomed Bees Commissions

Big-Bottomed Bees, 4 x 4 inches, oil on board

Melissa's Commission painting one

As you can see, I like taking commissions for painting Big-Bottomed Bees.  They are whimsical and can be dressed for shopping, happy hour at the hive, but always they have fun with each other and along with the initials BBB's they are also BFF's.
They are not ashamed of their Big-Bottoms, they have them and they just think of the song, Big-Bottomed Girls you make the world go round.  Below is Melissa's second commissioned piece.

She will give one of these pieces for her sister to purchase.  Melissa, tell family and friends and all of you who would like your very own Big-Bottomed Bee commissioned piece, just email me at  Prices are very reasonable.
About once weekly, I try to get a new BBB piece to for auction. I will say the BBB will be embarking on adventures that will make for an interesting painting with clear colors and clear missions to their adventures. In the coming few months they may share their sweet as honey written feelings in booklet form to help brighten your day.
The ladies have many more paintings that they want painted of themselves and welcome ideas from patron friends.  They and I bid you adieu for now...

Piglet Oil Painting, "Hay Maze" by Brande Arno

The finished "Hay Maze"  Piglet Art
I truly love how this piece came out.  I've been amazed at the pure color and beautiful brushwork of Angela Moulton's paintings. Every time I see her latest collection on YouTube, I am awestruck at how pure the background color is.  So I wanted to try my hand at upping background color value in my work.   Below is how I started:
Hay Maze Start Here, I establish the main layout and gesture of this piglet's face.  I'm striving for something that looks painterly, yet would bring a smile to the face of the viewer, so this stage is important.  Also, color values on the pig are being set. Hay Maze about halfway This is where I put that rich background color in.  Notice some neutral colors in with the bright.  I wouldn't want all bright green here as it would be like all caps when texting.  I'll re-post the final Hay Maze below:

Lots of changes from the halfway point,  I added shadows in the hay and a little here and there.  …

Bloomfield Shack in September

5 x 5 inches, Oil on Gessoboard
I've painted this many times and every time I drive by the actual shack, I have to stop and look/take more pictures to work from.  It's hard to admit that one smaller shack could inspire me so much.
