Bumblebee and Pink Mandala Fine Art Print – Disco Ball
Bumblebee and pink mandala fine art print is 12″ by 12″ on acid-free, cotton rag paper. Titled Disco Ball, this piece started as a photo of an extremely large black and yellow bumblebee visiting the blooms of the pink rhododendron in front of my house on Pleasant Hill, Morgantown, West Virginia. I created this celebratory piece as a revision of my first bee mandala, Bumblebee Waltz, which is much more sedate.

About the Paper. I print on Aurora Art Natural 250 paper. Aurora is made from cotton linters. These linters are considered "recovered fibers" by the EPA, so this paper is a sustainable choice in that regard. The paper has a natural, warm white tone and semi-smooth surface, so has enough tooth to hold plenty of ink while producing a sharp image.
About the Inks. I use pigment inks, which resist fading. If you frame your print using UV acylic or glass and hang it away from bright light, the chances of it fading before fifty years have elapsed is very low. Your print will stay vibrant throughout your lifetime and beyond.
About the art. The mandala on this card, titled Disco Ball, is a variation of the first bee piece I created, Bumblebee Waltz. The original photo was of an extremely large bumblebee gathering pollen from the extremely large rhododendron growing in front of my quite small house. Bumblebees are great pollinators because they're so freaking hairy. Pollen clings easily to their bodies and is transported from flower to flower, greatly aiding flowering plants in their mission to produce seeds with diverse and highly random characteristics. Bumblebees are docile and slow to sting. They're great partners in the garden and can be encouraged to stick around by leaving some bare patches of soil, where they'll overwinter in underground burrows.
