Some busy weeks recently–too many hobbies and some interesting stuff at work that has kept my mind occupied–have split my focus, so I am scaling back. I am dropping the story pursuit in favor of painting again. I framed this new work of my uncle at the bee hive the other night and am just getting around to putting it up. Hopefully I will get to painting it soon. Beekeeping is such a fascinating, mystique-filled pursuit that is nicely offset by the arrangement here of the hive in the woods by an old trailer. Rather than demystifying it, though, the trailer adds to the story. I am excited about this one also in part because there’s a human focus here that I will be able to build on for future works. Thanks for reading. More soon.
