Queen of Bees by jasminetoad Queen of Bees by jasminetoad
"Queen of Bees" - one of my special debut paintings for FaerieCon 2012. The original itself sold at the show but I have prints & posters available! There is a slightly sinister feel to this Rococo style portrait of a beautiful queen and her bees. There are a lot of little bee details in here as well as historical portraiture references - she is wearing a replica of a Minoan bee pendant from ancient Crete, Napoleon's "Bee with Laurels" imagery, a lot of fun stuff packed in here. I also love the bees themselves - you can even see some honeycombs peeking out from underneath her skirts! This is my own original acrylic painting. My original acrylic painting. Prints available at [link] and [link]

Lovely lovely lovely! If you are a big fan of bees and honey, you should read "Chalice" by Robin McKinley - spectacular novel! :)
