Biene’s Art Work – Part I


Rock Painting


Hello, my name is Gertrud Klopp. I am semiretired and live in Fauquier. Although, I loved drawing and painting as a child, I did not actively pursue this hobby until about ten years ago. Inspired by a book, I started painting animals on rocks with acrylics. Rock painting is probably one of the oldest art forms. It appeals to me because rocks are natural products and come in infinite shapes and sizes. A painted rock is like a sculptured object and can be safely displayed outside. Acrylic paints are wonderful! They allow me to repaint areas I am not satisfied with and eliminate the need to start the project all over again. Every summer while camping I have lots of fun collecting and painting rocks in nature’s inspiring work shop.

      Biene hat sich über den lieben Kommentar meiner Großnichte Edda sehr gefreut. Vielleicht gibt er ihr den Ansporn diesen Sommer mit ihrer Steinmalerei neu zu beginnen.

      Vielen Dank für den lieben Kommentar, liebe Cornelia! Ja, auch ich finde die Eulen sehr schön. Stell dir vor eine Dame aus Louisiana hat ihr einmal auf eBay drei von den niedlichen Eulen abgekauft. Übrigens, meine Frau kocht auch gerne und ich gebe ihr ab und zu einige deiner viel versprechenden Rezepte. Viele liebe Grüße!
