Baby Bees

Hello everyone,

I hope you have all been making the most of the September heat wave!

I'd like to introduce you to the splendid work of UG's youngest ever exhibiting artists....

I would like to say a special thank you to 6 year old Daisy May, granddaughter of landscape painter Hazel Cashmore, whose exceptional work is coming up next month.  Hazel sent me a picture of a gorgeous painting that Daisy May did last year and I was amazed by it. So, Daisy May gave me the idea to invite some of UG's artists' children to participate in the Plight of The Bumblebee exhibition. The excellent results are as follows:

'Happy Bee' by 6 year old Daisy May.

'Buzzy Bees' by 6 year old Ishbel Moore.

'Bees and Baskets' by 9 year old Eleanor Horton.

'Bees, Unicorn and Pink Pony' by 5 year old Jessie McGuire.
What a refreshing and wonderful insight into the worlds of young children! Apologies to young Suzanna Horton that I am unable to supply an image of her artwork, but the proud new owner was so keen to get it home that I didn't get time to photograph it.
The real magic and joy about these paintings is that the children earned a little pocket money whilst doing something they enjoyed, the Bumblebee Conservation Trust got some funds too, but more importantly the children learned a valuable lesson about the importance of our beautiful bees.

If you are in our neck of the woods tomorrow then pop in between 12-2 as Ooh Fashion are having a launch party. You can enjoy a glass of fizz and see what we have all been up to.

Have a buzzy weekend all!
