Dreams Of Milk And Honey

This is one of those paintings that seems to come from nowhere. When I started drawing this one up all I knew is I wanted a painting with a beehive. The sketching took 2 full days with much erasing. Initially the lady was nude, but when I started adding the animals, the mood switched from sensuality to innocence, had to put some clothes on her. What I like about this one is how the warm "honey colors" play off the "coolness" of the landscape/atmosphere, (milk and honey).
