2 colonies now! and some spare parts.
I love to paint and keep bees! Watercolours mainly but I like oil pastels for the texture. I teach art to some young people as part of my day job as a lecturer. I need to practice my sketching though. I would like to see some of your work.

I like the middle one, too - the one that says 'for sale'.

Are you selling them?

hi there . i paint them on reclaimed timber and slate. i use enamels n acrylics. i also paint other subjects too. as for the for sale bit not really more of a hobby and enjoy giving them to family n friends as gifts.as it beats giving them socks n smelly soaps. we keep chooks but never had the confidence for bees. but always been fascinated by this much loved endevour bee-smillie

Mine was the Wood End Cottage sign and i cant recommend painterman highly enough. Really lovely to deal with and very friendly and accommodating. And a hell of a lot cheaper than any other online shop etc.

PM him and he will get back to you asap. :)
