Beehive and smoker

© Robin Edmundson, 'Beehive, smoker',  18 x 22 inches framed. 

I use a smoker when working the bees.  It keeps them calmer.   This colony has four boxes.  The brood nest is in the bottom 2 boxes and they put the honey in the top boxes.   During a good flow, a colony can fill 4 or 5 of these boxes in a season.   We pull off the extra and harvest it.

I've had so much fun painting these hives!  I think this might be my favorite.   22 x 18 inches, framed.  $350.  All of these original watercolors will be hung and available for purchase at my upcoming show.
