I created this smaller bee painting especially for Artfinder's partnership with the environmental charity Friends of the Earth bee-themed art exhibition for the launch of the Great British Bee Count.
I wanted this work to incorporate the importance and beauty of these tiny fundamental insects and therefore have chosen the golden background which is a symbol of preciousness and prosperity. I was also interested in the bees inner mechanisms and chose to paint from a naturalist study of its interiors.
This painting has a beautiful glow during the day and especially at night. Its reflective surface adds a touch of warmth to any room in your home.
I will be producing another 5 paintings with this golden leaf background featuring animals. Follow me and stay tuned!
This painting is:
- 8 x 10 in. / 20.32 x 25.4 cm.
- painted with Zecchi firenze professional grade Italian oil paints
- painted on light golden leaf which has been protected in 6 layers of laquer I prepare in my studio
- signed on the front & eventually on the back
Looks beautiful simply unframed on your wall.
