Eve and the fruit. The first temptation right before the first bite into sin.

The flowers in the order front to back:

Almond - Virginity and Fruitfulness (What she in now)

Lotus - Mystery and truth (What the sin will give her)

Day lily/Hemerocallis - Emblem of the Mother (What she will become)

There is the bee on the Almond Flower taking from it and her innocence. She has her lips just ever so slightly open and eyes gleaming at the temptation in front of her.

This is a painting I just finshed today. I want to see what others think here. Done all in Photoshop CS3 with a Wacom Graphire 4.
