Sometimes Something Has to Sting Us to Get Our Attention

Getting stung by a bee is not a pleasant experience.

I painted this encaustic work to symbolize the metaphor of being stung by a Bee as an “Awakening” so to speak.

At times, listening to our bodies or our feelings are not a priority for us; in our busy and chaotic lives.

So as a result some major trauma or unpleasantness has us sit up….. and listen with a vigilance .
