Telling the Bees
This is my favourite image I have done in a while. It is an A2 4 colour screen print about the Sussex tradition of 'telling the bees'.
If the bees weren't told of any important event they would withhold their honey from the owners. If there was a death in the family the hive would be decorated with a black crepe bow otherwise the bees would die in sympathy.
