Bee Paintings

Encaustic painting is a mixture of pigments added to heated beeswax and is the oldest method of painting originating in Greece in the 5th century B.C.  It is only natural the mysterious bee holds an honoured place as a favourite subject matter.  The bee has been associated with fertility, perfect models of human society, mediators between the natural and  underworlds.  They also symbolise the ability to accomplish the impossible!  The last attribute holds a deep and personal meaning for Kathleen.
