Bee and Flower Are One, Oil on Wooden Panel (24"x18"x1.5")
Bee and Flower Are One
Oil on cradled, wooden panel, 24"x18"x1.5".
Created for the Bee or Not 2 Bee show at Studio 107B in Taos, neither the bee nor the flower can exist without the other.
How shall we distinguish that which is good in pleasure from that which is not good?
Go to your fields and your gardens, and you shall learn that it is the pleasure of the bee to gather honey of the flower,
But it is also the pleasure of the flower to yield its honey to the bee.
For to the bee a flower is a fountain of life,
And to the flower a bee is a messenger of love,
And to both, bee and flower, the giving and the receiving of pleasure is a need and an ecstasy.
From Kahil Girbran's The Prophet
