Queen

The final sibling in my muscle-relaxer art adventure. You may not know this, but I struggle with a bee-phobia after a traumatic wasp swarm event in my childhood. The bold yellow and brownish-black stripes here, along with the segmented, cascading circle shapes strongly resonate with yellow-jacket markings. But somehow, this isn't disturbing me. Perhaps it's because the "stinger" is off-camera, maybe it's the lack of clear eyes. Or maybe the part of my brain that panics at bees was relaxed enough to explore this fun use of orange, my favorite color.
