30 Paintings in 30 Days: September, 2014—Day 6

Throughout the month, I will be painting subjects related to bringing awareness for Heifer Internaitonal

A Heifer honeybee donation includes a bee package, hive, box and training in beekeeping techniques. When you buy bees for a family in need, your gift:
  • • Boosts income through sales of honey, wax and pollen
  • • Stimulates growth of the family’s crops through pollination
Sometimes it's the smallest gifts that make the largest impact. Healthy beehives can can double fruit and vegetable yields of small farms. 

I hope you take a moment to visit the Heifer Internaitonal website and learn more about ending world hunger "The Heifer Way."


  1. So simple, and so pretty! Let's save the bees! I took part in a show for the bees...

    Love that you have dedicated this month to such a worthy cause.

    1. Thanks, Sheila. Love your carpenter bee! Great detail. Best of luck with your 30.
