BB War

Title: BB War

Medium: Oils on canvas board

Size: 12 x 30.5 inches approx

Subject/ Image: A play on words piece based around the nature of BB guns. My love for translating phrases in to literal meanings played a large part in formulating what I wanted to achieve. In this case the literal aspect of a BB gun was replaced by actual bee's who themselves became the focal point of the war on the canvas. The idea of bumble bees having their own certified weapons to attack in combat was an amusing one. The BB guns have been painted to become extensions of their limbs and are being used in a war they are having in a field of flowers.
