The Queen in Winter
"The Queen in Winter" Monotype print with 24k gold over panel, 10" x 10". Check her out on the 2023 VIVA Art Studio Tour, the first two weekends in May. Link @vivartists.com Each winter, the beehive clusters, the queen at warmest, center, with the core worker bees shaking, shivering around her to maintaining a survivable heat. The fate of the hive depends on how sufficiently the hive population has prepared for winter.
