Description

2018, 11 x 10 1/2 inches, colored pencils, graphite pencils and pastels. This is a detail from 'Bees Disappearing as Pollinators' showing dark outlined white shaped bees and their path of flight. The white ghost like bee shapes represent the disappearance of bees due to disease and man's use of pesticides. They contrast with the rest of the colored composition to ensure that their absence is noticed by viewers. Sadly, the bee visitation to my Monarch patch, upon which this drawing was based, has been vastly decreasing every summer.
