Curator's Note: This playful print is light and airy and remind us of simple, happy days.
These bees are flying around on a sunny day in whimsical way. I had to title this Happy Bees because the painting seems to generate a feeling of happiness. I created this piece thinking about childhood, long summer days, and warm weather. I am also a fan of gardening and love to see bees in my backyard.

I am a painter. I have loved painting all my life. I studied Art and Art History at UC Berkeley, and have been painting professionally ever since. I have shown in galleries and museums all over California, and have sold hundreds of paintings all over the world, from New York, to Finland and Qatar. I am inspired by nature, color and emotion. Hopefully you will get a sense of calm, happiness, or wonder from what I paint. I'm not out to make political statements with my work, but to express joy and gratitude of life through the medium of oil paints. Claire Whitehead
