foxglove flower sunset bee


Oil on Board
80 x 80 cms, 31.5 x 31.5 inches

As an artist most of the inspiration for my art comes from the local landscape in Sussex or my garden.  Each year I have several foxgloves in flower, but I never plant them.  Instead they naturally come up from seeds spread from elsewhere.  Part of my garden is completely left wild, so indigenous wildflowers can take over and encourage diversity in the local insect, amphibian, reptile and mammal populations.

This large oil painting is about a sultry summer evening, when the sun is setting, and the last few bees of the day are collecting the last of their pollen in the warm humid air. The foxglove is still flowering late into the season, growing ever taller and now has become too heavy for itself so you get the characteristic bend in the stem.
