It's time for the Summer Bee Auction at Monmouth Bee Festival!
I'm delighted that my original painting Wild Pink Roses and Bee from the Magical Bees and Flowers collection was kindly accepted by Bees for Development for their Summer Auction 2021 - offered in support of their international charity work in raising funds to help alleviate poverty across the world through beekeeping.
Their charity work is a lovely, positive and empowering way of helping communities and wildlife more than thrive - it helps them to exist. An example is a recent project during the pandemic last year to stabilise eroded land in Ethiopia - the soil underpins the local life-dependent eco-system; left unchecked, it would lead to extinction.
'Wild Pink Roses and Bee' was painted with consideration for the timeless beauty and hope to be gained from the ongoing cycles of nature.
It's a bright and unique painting that will add a cheery note to any room.
If you would like to own the original piece and support a very good cause in doing so, do visit Bees for Development for a link to their online auction, which closes this Sunday 1st August. They have over a hundred items in the auction - so plenty to choose from!
Their long-awaited Bee Festival also takes place on Sunday in Monmouth - officially the first Bee Town in the UK.
