"Sticky Situation" Oil Painting by Linda McCoy

Yes Ottawa, This is a copyright image!!
4"X4" Oil on panel: Sold
The honey was purchased from a beekeeper we saw at Findlay Market. I was intrigued by the shape of the bottle. When I asked him how the bees were doing after a few years of difficulty he said the hives were better, but that he hadn't lost many, as the other beekeepers had. This is a small painting, but took many days to paint. The smaller the painting, the more important the details become. The light is coming from the east, great morning light. The pears are from our pear tree, we have a bumper crop. Many pears left to paint!
