The Life of the Bee 2
enlarge image


The Life of the Bee 2 is so called because of the book pages I have collaged as a base directly onto the canvas. These are sealed and prepared with layers of sepia tinted gesso to give the leathery, aged surface that I love to create (I have used the same technique for my little Hummingbird paintings) this allows some of the text to be read but it doesn't over power the painting.
My bee is inspired by the little mason bees that live in my house's brickwork and have tunneled their way through indoors. Sadly they don't live for long, though I try to rescue as many as I can...
Please contact me if you are interested in this artwork.
