When the whole world seems dark,
it’s usually time to dance.
For reasons I don’t completely understand, I’ve recently felt the need to revisit and bling up some of my signature mandalas. Bumblebee Waltz has been around since 2014, when I first started creating mandala art. My eight fat bumblebees on a pink dancefloor has always been popular at festivals, but suddenly seemed dull and lifeless, at least to my eyes. Feeling a little crazed, I set upon the bees with a digital paintbrush, adding light and a bit more volume. The resulting piece is fun and, I hope, uplifting.
