the keeper

the keeper, 6×8 inch blank journal
mixed media and encaustic cover

I remember reading an article about the vanishing bee colonies explaining that the honey bee is critical in the food production on this planet of ours. The humble bumble bee, the keeper of life. It is scary to think about the implications of the vanishing bees.

This 6×8 blank journal is now available at amanobooks.


Even though I have my own web shop, I also have a shop set up on etsy. I like the concept of etsy as well as the energy there. Oh, and don’t forget the shopping there! Actually I try not to do too much browsing there because there are so many cool things to buy there.

Tangled Sky Studio told me about an Etsy Team called The BEE team which is a group of artists there who work in encaustics. They have a nifty web site that they set up that has links and info and all sorts of cool things. I am now a member of the team and I am looking forward to participating in the group. I’m hoping that by being part of this group, I may get motiviated to keep my etsy shop updated on a regular basis.


  1. As soon as I pulled this post up I smiled and thought…welcome to the team! I’d love to add this piece to October’s “bee” gallery (may I?). This cover is sooo beautiful. It’s rich colors and texture really call out to be touched or held in one’s hand. Lovely!

  2. I came here and what did I see?
    found some art that shows a bee…
    if you don’t mind,
    I would like the world to see,
    a link, a picture, in a post from me!

    Smile you have “bee”n spotted! I do a weekly bee spotting post and would like to show you off in my next post, usually every Tuesday. If you wish not to bee featured, let me know ASAP!!

    This one is real near and dear to me beecause the name of my art business is “Blue Bee Designs”
