Burt’s Bees Lipstick Painting – Help Save The Bees

Flowers for the Bees

17 Feb Burt’s Bees Lipstick Painting – Help Save The Bees

First Impressions (Final) social medialC Sower 2016

This December (2015) I had the privilege of being asked to do a painting as part of a promotion for Burt’s Bees to launch their new line of  lipsticks – and help save the bees. How could I say no?

The above painting is done entirely in lipsticks – all 14 shades – and some lip balms. I used palette knives and cold wax to help the lipsticks set. Then finished with spray fixative. Before I got to this stage, however, I did several studies and played with the lipsticks  – the kind of thing you dream about – if you like lipstick.

It was such an interesting project. 10 Artists from across Canada participated and the works will be shown at the Arta Gallery in Toronto – details below – and auctioned off with the proceeds going to plant wildflowers for the bees! Thank you Burt’s Bees for including me.

So, if you find yourself in Toronto, Canada late February :

Visit the Arta Gallery in Toronto’s Distillery District between Feb 27 & Mar 11, 3 – 8pm – FREE Admission & FREE Gift daily, while supplies last.

Also, bid to own your favourite piece of lipstick artwork in support of Wildlife Preservation Canada.  More details in gallery.
