Have you ever wondered how a bumblebee feels while going about the business of collecting nectar? You need wonder no longer, as Don Peeler has brought to us the view of our beloved pollinators. These oil on canvas paintings make us look at the iris and hibiscus in a new way. It is common enough to see floral photographs and paintings, but Don invites us inside the flower itself to see a very magnified view of the petals. Our busy bees, butterflies, and hummingbirds certainly have a lovely office to work in.
These are large paintings and their colors will draw you in making you want to pull up a chair and sit for awhile. To get the full experience come by the Pease Gallery Monday-Thursday 10am-2pm. These paintings will be on display until October 4th.
Don is also represented by the Shain Gallery
