Collage/Painting with the theme of bees printed and painted on bristol board with images of antique ephemera and cone flowers (which the bees love) painted by me on a green damask printed background. Elements of hand dyed ribbon, tiny buttons and gold trim on some of the pieces with the complete recipe for bee tea complete the concept. Bee tea is a mixture of herbs and honey placed outside to attract bees to your garden so they will pollinate your plants. Without pollination there is no food or flowers. This is a very vintage looking piece and it is framed in a distressed pine frame.
