An acrylic painting on cradle board - edges finished with a white wash.
I have a wonderful memory of my elegant sister waist deep in flowers trying to photograph bees on a recent trip to the UK. They are very wary and it is a difficult task. This painting was inspired by the image. I wanted to create the impression of a warm and breezy summer day with busy bees buzzing around pollen laden flowers.
The painting is ready to hang but can be float framed. The format is both strong and light to ship. I'm also happy to create larger versions of any of my paintings. I think this one would look wonderful in a country style home about 60" x 48".
Please don't hesitate to contact me with any questions.
This is my submission for the Great British Bee Count exhibition. It will be for sale after completion of the jury process and exhibition June 30th, 2016. I would be happy to reserve it for you.
"They may be tiny but bees play a vital role in nature and our economy. Sadly, they’re in crisis. They’re losing their natural habitats, and are under assault from pesticides, intensive farming and climate change. That’s why Friends of the Earth is urging the British Government and public to join the generation that saves bees with its Bee Cause campaign.
Friends of the Earth hopes to raise awareness about all of our bees, and their role in nature, during the Great British Bee Count from 19th May-30th June 2016. For more information https://www.foe.co.uk/page/great-british-bee-count-2016-sign-up
Most British species are solitary bees or bumblebees (the UK has just 1 honey bee). They all play an important role in pollinating a wide range of plants and crops."
