I received a commission to paint a front panel of a new beehive.  The hive belongs to friends, and I'm looking forward to visiting their new bees.  The view depicted is from their house, of the Santa Cruz Mountains. 




The panel, albeit a bit crooked & blurry & with a fair amount of glare:

I'll post more photos later, of the beehive in it's new location, with the new occupants.  
Two canvases, side by side.  On left Maymont (sold), on the right is Lower Orchard.  
Both measure 20"x 20" and are oil on canvas.

(note:  there was an earlier version of this... a small one on wood panel measuring 6"x6")
