|© 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.
