THE BEE KEEPER

THE STORY:

It was the old man who found the lost bee that had wandered far off and had not been seen for many a day.
Barely alive and clinging to a purple flower, the bee sensed his keeper was near and with all it's strength he buzzed his frail wings as a cry for salvation. At that very moment, the old bee man suddenly appeared and said, "Hello, my little friend. I have been searching for you for quite some time. I have now found you and will now keep you close to my heart. For I love all of my servants and I will never loose any of you". ~JB

MY THOUGHTS:

This painting and its meaning kind of grew while I was creating it. To be lost and suddenly found is a very beautiful thing. It's inspired by how God loves us and how He keeps us close to Him and also how He searches us out when we are lost.

THE MEANS:

I painted this using watercolor and gesso on Arches 140 lb cold press paper. It measures 5 1/2 x 8 1/2 inches.
