Thanks To A Bee | 15.5" x 15.5" | Textile Art on Cotton with Wool
I love bees. Bees are the foundation of our human food chain and without them, we would not be able to eat. About one mouthful in three in our diet directly or indirectly benefits from honey bee pollination. This piece is a tribute to the great pollinators seeking food on Black-eyed Susans. In fact, this flower has has a hidden superpower that draws in the bees. Notice the subtle darkening toward the base of the yellow petals forms a bulls-eye circle around the disk. That darkening is actually caused by an ultraviolet pigment which bees can see much better than we do, and it forms a strong visual cue that leads them to the nectar and pollen at the flower’s center.
This piece is framed with a custom-made solid walnut frame included in the price.
