Bee Hive II is a large composition with a wreath structure made of grape vines in the center to suggest a nest/hive. Birch bark fragments surround the exterior with corn flower, rose and hydrangea petals, mosses and delicate leaves. Resting on the hive are bees made from antique broaches with wings created of delicate dried leaves baked to enhance the fragile appearance. The botanical elements are secured with wood glue and pearlized paint pigments, and gold leaf is applied for embellishment. The composition is glazed with clear lacquer for preservation and enhancement.
