Bee Alert

50" H x 30" W
April 2017



The horror of waking up on November 9, 2016 to learn Donald Trump was elected our 45th President has only been compounded with each Cabinet appointee. Every time another appointee’s name was made public and his/her inappropriateness for the job was brought to light, I cringed. It felt as though Trump was gleefully poking a Satan’s pitchfork at a hive of evil bees. What happened to Obama’s message of hope? Then it struck me, aren’t we experiencing the lesson from Pandora’s box? I choose to depict the nightmarish world with stinging bees against the flames of Hell, with a lone bee in rainbow stripes still standing proud in the hive.
