New painting for the Bee Rotica show at The Hive Gallery 8/6/11

The last Art Walk I attended in downtown L.A. was absolute madness! Thousands of people crowded the streets, shoulder to shoulder, headed to art galleries, food trucks, and bars. I had to get the heck out of there, but first I had to swing by The Hive Gallery after being asked to participate in their annual Bee Rotica art show; and what an awesome space! The bee inspired decor mixed with the concoction of cool art made it a buzzing hive of culture and love. 

Their annual Bee Rotica show (yes the inspiration is erotic art and bees) should be a very cool opening and I suggest all attend if you are local to the Los Angeles area. This will be my first group show where the participating artists all adhere to a common theme, so I am interested to see how the rest of the artists interpreted their erotic honey pots filled with sex appeal. For the show, I created a small oil painting that I am quite proud of. Many more oil paintings in the works, but you should make it out to the event to see this piece in the flesh, and I will be there of course, come say "hello!"
