Artist's description:

My subject for this painting is a little bumble bee known as the Shrill Carder Bee, the queen is only 17mm and her workers are even smaller.
My bee is painted much larger than life in acrylic inks and paints onto a surface of vintage book pages all describing the life of the bee. The book pages have been collaged onto canvas and painted with multiple coats of sepia ink that give a vintage and lovely, leathery appearance to the surface. The wings have a slight shimmer from the ink and gloss medium I have used.
I have mounted the painting in a soft white 40cm x 40cm square mount and initialled the front of the canvas.
