Bumblebee

One of a new series of watercolour bee paintings. Bees are pollinators vital to our food chain. One third of the food we eat would not be available if it were not for bees. The dramatic and unexplained decline in the population of these insects is worrying for everyone, not just the conservationists.
Fewer bees means less pollination, which results in less honey and fewer plants. Bees are in danger of disappearing from our environment. Farming practices continue to disturb the natural habitats and forage of solitary and bumblebees at a rate which gives them little chance for re-establishment. The honey bee is under attack from the varroa mite and it is only the treatment and care provided by beekeepers that is keeping colonies alive. Most wild honey bee colonies have died out as a result of this disease. All bees are in danger of being poisoned by insecticides.

Jean Tatton Jones

Welcome to my gallery.  " The happy highways where I went and cannot come again" (A.E.Houseman.) I hope you enjoy browsing and perhaps find a painting to your taste as well. I have sold over 3000 paintings internationally to individuals and to corporate groups, including medical and dental centres, restaurants and offices and my work has been exhibited at many galleries. I graduated from a British university and have also won awards for poetry which has been published in North America, Europe, India and Britain. I use a variety of art media including watercolour, acrylic and oil and my themes include landscapes, sea views, flowers and abstract design. Some of my recent work has a dream like quality and is born from our rich cultural heritage of myths, legends and poetry which evoke feelings of mystery and enchantment. The paintings come initialled on the front, signed and dated on the back and with a Certificate of Authenticity. They are on a frame with painted gallery edges, so are ready to hang. Thank you for looking.
