A honey bee (also spelled honeybee) is a eusocial flying insect within the genus Apis of the bee clade, all native to Eurasia but spread to four other continents by human beings. They are known for construction of perennial, colonial nests from wax, for the large size of their colonies, and for their surplus production and storage of honey, distinguishing their hives as a prized foraging target of many animals, including honey badgers, bears and human hunter-gatherers.[from wikipedia]

The world is so vast and complex. Every person is unique. As I paint each person after person individually, the resulting collection reveals a colorful look into an entire region's cultural identity. The paintings focus on body-gestures, outfits, and even auras.[from artist's website]

The egg is the organic vessel containing the zygote in which an embryo develops until it can survive on its own, at which point the animal hatches. An egg results from fertilization of an egg cell. Most arthropods, vertebrates (excluding mammals), and mollusks lay eggs, although some, such as scorpions, do not.[from wikipedia]

A train is a form of rail transport consisting of a series of connected vehicles that generally run along a railroad (or railway) track to transport passengers or cargo (also known as "freight" or "goods"). The word "train" comes from the Old French trahiner, derived from the Latin trahere meaning "to pull" or "to draw".[from wikipedia]

Art may be characterized in terms of mimesis (its representation of reality), narrative (storytelling), expression, communication of emotion, or other qualities. During the Romantic period, art came to be seen as "a special faculty of the human mind to be classified with religion and science".[from wikipedia]

"What's Your Inner Sun?", As A Form Of Art, At The 2019 Burning Man Decompression Party, Old Power Station, San Francisco, California

By building an 8 story wooden globe, lit from within by a sacred light, and gently cradled by two massive hands we hope to answer one small question: What's your InnerSun? For every answer we receive from participants worldwide, we'll create a steel hand engraved with their words and unite thousands of them in a beautiful patchwork upon the final structure. This global art collaboration will bring together more participants than Burning Man alone, while creating a community that far outlasts the event itself.[from the inner sun.org]

Listrikki Barcode Art, As A Form Of Art, At The 2019 Burning Man Decompression Party, Old Power Station, San Francisco, California

A barcode or bar code is a method of representing data in a visual, machine-readable form. Initially, barcodes represented data by varying the widths and spacings of parallel lines. These barcodes, now commonly referred to as linear or one-dimensional (1D), can be scanned by special optical scanners, called barcode readers. Later, two-dimensional (2D) variants were developed, using rectangles, dots, hexagons and other geometric patterns, called matrix codes or 2D barcodes, although they do not use bars as such. 2D barcodes can be read or deconstructed using application software on mobile devices with inbuilt cameras, such as smartphones.[from wikipedia]

Pangaea, As Art, At The 2019 Burning Man Decompression Party, Old Power Station, San Francisco, California

Pangaea or Pangea was a supercontinent that existed during the late Paleozoic and early Mesozoic eras. It assembled from earlier continental units approximately 335 million years ago, and it began to break apart about 175 million years ago. In contrast to the present Earth and its distribution of continental mass, Pangaea was centred on the Equator and surrounded by the superocean Panthalassa. Pangaea is the most recent supercontinent to have existed and the first to be reconstructed by geologists.[from wikipedia]
