“Honeybees came immediately to mind when thinking about creatures that need protection and healing. The top member of the Apis Mellifera community is the Queen Bee who is usually the mother of most, if not all, of the bees in the beehive.”
The Queen Bee is a part of the Icon Series by Lind Hollingsworth which focuses on the supporting roles of small creatures in our ecosystem. 2D mixed media relief painting, 12x12, framed. Complimentary shipping within the Continental U.S.
“The construction of the icons uses my mixed media technique of creating a low relief by building up rag paper, mat board, spackling and paper based clay. Paint and generous amount of metal leaf embellish the relief images of flora and fauna. In iconography, frames play the important role of separating the heavenly from the earthly. In the spirit of that concept, great care and thought has gone into the selection of the frame for each piece. In the end, I hope the icons are objects of beauty that will inspire belief in the glory of nature and the will to preserve it.” - Lind Hollingsworth
