This original drawing was created as a thank you for a friend during lock down.

On 21st March,  I received a government letter to shield, having been identified as extremely vulnerable.

( Due to past chemotherapy & a lowered immune system,  due to Blood Cancer) 

That meant that for the duration of the 12 week lockdown, I was strongly advised to stay at home.

It has had it challenges, to say the least.  

One thing that has provided me with an increased sense of wellbeing & routine,  was to practise Yoga daily. 

So, this piece was created as a thank you to Becci from Bee Yoga for her daily youtube videos.


The piece  features an early honey bee (Bee Apis mellifera European or-Western honey bee)  The bee is active in the spring and early summer.  The 4 flowers represent each month the flowers bloom, in the UK. March - Magnolia | April - Anemone | May - Sweet Pea |  June - Hydrangea | 

The drawing is small, you can see this from the scale of the pens. It was created in a 0.05 or 0.1 pen tip.


You can find out more on the Bee Yoga Facebook page or request to join the video facebook group HERE

There are lots of great sessions for all abilities. Encompassing blast, gentle,  flowing or mediative sequences. All with a killer soundtrack, in a non judgemental style.
