I've posted previously about my 'Honey Bee' series when I was first getting started with it. Since then I've actually taken it a bit further and decided to bring sculpture (?) into the picture but creating resin-filled jars mimicking various blends of honey.
Materials are as follows: resin, ink, acrylic, natural beeswax, shellac, gold pigment powder, imitation gold leaf, tracing paper, graphite and lavender flowers on canvas or in glass jars.
At this point I bet you're thinking I've gone wild with the materials. Maybe I have. But they are all very relevant to this project and even though I'm not one for using a hundred thousand materials in my work but there was no other way this project could be done. It's a complex series and I guess that makes sense because bees are complex little creatures.
Anyway, here are some progress photos! If you want to know anything more about this series just leave a comment and I'll get back to you.
