Q: Who loves an underdog?
A: I hope everyone does, because right now, that's me!


I need your help. My beeswax paintings are taking a beating.

I entered a contest to win a fabulous art festival tent, which I sorely need to exhibit my wax paintings, and I'm one of five finalists. The other mediums represented are oil, photography, jewelry and acrylic.

Right now, I'm in LAST PLACE with 33 votes, and the current lead is pulling in 161. The contest ends on July 30, 2014, so this means I have only 12 days to catch up. Can I get your vote?

Beeswax painting, also known as encaustics, is a gorgeous medium, highly durable, with a unique luminosity like no other. Every time I exhibit, I'm energized by sharing my art with a largely curious and appreciative audience. My current tent setup is lacking, and winning this professional tent would allow me to do shows in more states, and share this ancient medium with greater ease.

I don't know any other community that shows as much support and passion for beekeeping, bees, and its affiliated products. I'd love it if you could continue that tradition and vote for an artist who adores painting with beeswax. It take two seconds to vote.

Conserving wild bees

Research suggests that bumble bee boxes have a very low success rate in actually attracting bees into them. We find that if you create an environment where first of all you can attract mice inside, such as a pile of stones, a drystone wall, paving slabs with intentionally made cavities underneath, this will increase the success rate.

Most bumble bee species need a dry space about the size a football, with a narrow entrance tunnel approximately 2cm in diameter and 20 cm long. Most species nest underground along the base of a linear feature such as a hedge or wall. Sites need to be sheltered and out of direct sunlight.

There is a spectacular display of wild bee hotels here
