a comment from a staff member at SOB
:iconso-often-bled:
 makes me wonder if the bee-cover is just a mental self-dense ~ never quite as effective or invisible as one would hope.
She's reading a book while propped on a bed in lovely business attire.
Yet there are bees in her environment - pests or pets,
they are buzzing thoughts outside of their natural element.

I absolutely adore the detail that those are all different kinds of bees.
Unsettling but also really quite attractive somehow.
Man, it's definitely surreal..

The realism of the shelf in the background is quite stunning -- very much like a slightly out-of-focus background to a photograph. Really lovely job there!

how wonderful, we recently had to OPTIC and study this image in my English class a couple weeks ago, such a wonderful piece of surrealism, and an even better story when coupled with the poem by Sylvia Plath.
