Bee Strong--Despite...Mixed media (acrylic, rice paper, internet text & marker on canvas), 16 x 20 inches

This is the third of my bee paintings. Pesticides, one category called neonicotinoids, are destroying bees (and other insects,birds & aquatic life as well!). Roundup is one of the product's consumer names. In my garden the assortment of bee types are often camaflouged, but I can locate them by their mesmerizing buzz. I am very grateful for bees & am doing what I can to assure that they not only continue but also their thrive!!!
