Stunning original mixed media painting, including paint, pencil, ink and papers on 24x30x1.5" wrapped canvas ready to hang with a wire on the back.

Beatrice is from the 1920,s and lived a very simple life. Her passion was her garden and her bee's. Her grandfather was a beekeeper and he passed the skill onto his son, her father, and he taught Beatrice all he knew. Beatrice took the passion beyond just producing honey and expanded to making beeswax candles, flower pollen, bee pollen and royal jelly. For a woman in the 1920's she really was an entrepreneur as back then beekeeping was mostly led by men.

Having always been a bit of a tom boy Beatrice had no problem putting on her protective clothing and heading out to the hives and she was keen to do it all herself. Making frames and swinging a hammer was an enjoyable afternoon. The beautiful golden bees yeilded many pounds of honey thanks to the good care of Beatrice and she lived a very happy life.
