Beehives 5, 17 and 32

At one time in his life my father was a hobby beekeeper. I have always been fascinated by bees, their fanatical and precise behaviour and the way the hives are organised. This painting was part of an exhibition where I investigated small functional structures around New Zealand and documented my findings.
