Here’s a vignette from a new piece that I’m working on called Lamentation for the Last Drop of Honey. I always have fun with the title of my pieces, but this drawing had at its heart a serious concern: the devastation we’ve seen in honey bee populations. I’m not a scientist, I am an artist, and so my response is through art. It’s not a message. It’s more a reflection or meditation. The finished piece will appear (in reproduction) in TOME II Melancholia and (the original art) the November beinArt show at Copro Gallery next month.
The weather has been remarkable this past week. I was able to get out to take some reference photographs. This one was taken in a nearby bog.
