Watercolor on Marble paper.

Started out as an illustration for the song a few of my favorite things and became a study in the contrast between machine mechanics and the mechanics of nature.

This piece really touched me. Maybe I'm looking into it too much but I wonder whether the mechanical bee has any sense of the loss of something wild and organic. Thanks for sharing this with us.
