Another nice painting. Here in Kansas they are consider a weed. We have to kill them. But they are pretty.

This is absolutely STUNNING! My god, it looks like a photo!!!!  It's pure perfection!  The darling Thistle, the emblem of Scotland, a very beautiful but prickly plant.  And the darling bumble bee going about his business of sniffing and feeding.  I really adore this, and I love bumbles, I used to have a lot of them in my garden in Ireland where I planted tons of lavender, in fact they used to let me stroke them.  The details are astonishing, I adore this, and not a brush stroke in site, just the way I like it.. ;o)  Very well done and thank you for sharing Paula and I look forward to viewing the rest of your paintings this evening.
