June is the month that my garden explodes. Peonies, phlox, iris, allium, chives...the pinks, purples and whites look incredible against a leafy green backdrop. I only wish I could gather the best parts and put them on hold...they're already starting to fade.

It's also the time of year for mosquitos and bees, who find me to be well beyond delicious. If their love bites didn't make me puff up so much, I suppose I'd be able to find a way to appreciate them. A few weekends ago, I met an artist at the Riverdale Art Walk who creates incredible drawings based on the movement within the hive itself. Adrianne Rubenstein's 'beescapes' are fascinating and beautiful, and her large scale pieces made me feel just a bit guilty about my hardcore bee hate-on.


  1. I just bought and framed a giant beescape by Adrianne Rubenstein and it looks amazing in my zen den. she's showing a new series at Fountain Gallery (new gallery at Palmerston & Queen) Check it out!

  2. Good for you! There's nothing like hanging a new piece of artwork in your living space for the very first time. Enjoy your piece, and thanks for the heads up on the show...I'll be sure to check it out!
