The large bees took everything I knew about sculpting to create and I learned that I could indeed do more than one sculpture of the same creature!  They’re each a bit different and I must say I’m rather attached to them.

The little bees have found a home in a beautiful oak box that my husband made for me.  He’s the best!

Both of these pieces will be part of an art exhibit that Suzanne Wegener and I will be holding at the Heller Nature Center in Highland Park starting on May 2, 2017.  There will be an artists’ demonstration and reception on May 6 from 1-3 pm.  Hope to see you there!
