“This painting came about when we were living in North Carolina and my wife was writing an article about an apiary at Wagram. She came back from the assignment with some beeswax and the little wooden box you can see on the left hand side of the painting in front of the smoker. The box is for transporting the queen bee. I was fascinated by the complexity of the honey-making process. The apiarist was kind enough to lend all the beekeeping paraphernalia shown in the painting.”
