Chandler's Bees

7 x 7 Pastel on Wallis Paper, 16 x 16 Framed
$150 + s/h (Framed)

Our good friends, the Chandlers, have started a colony of bees on a piece of their property.  I couldn't wait until I got to see them in their "designer bee clothes."  The whole set up is impressive, and I am extremely excited about getting honey from their hives next year.  I took a lot of photos, and plan on doing another painting when I have time.  This was a quick study, and I see lots of "should have," "could have" possibilities for the next one.  We were there when the light was fading.  These studies are so helpful for me, and I hope to go and watch them smoke the bees when the time comes.  It doesn't take much to get me excited!!
