"Ursinia" are more commonly known as the "African Daisy".  These flowers are incredible easy to grow and come in several different colors.  Bees are particularly attracted to Ursinia blossoms because of a unique optical illusion that the flower is capable of.  Humans can't see it, but bees see a blue halo effect around the flowers that draws them in.  

This original mixed media artwork was drawn with a water soluble pen with my non dominant hand on a collaged substrate of papers including some from a vintage textbook on beekeeping.  I added a wash of gesso before doing my drawing, then brought the piece to life with watercolors.  

The artwork is 4" x 6" on paper and will be shipped to you in an archival sleeve so that you can frame it to your liking.
