Biene’s Art Work – Part III

My Wife’s Art Work

Last week I published some paintings, which generated quite a bit of praise  and supporting comments in the blogging community, but they were somewhat dated and according to my wife’s opinion not all were worthwhile to be put on my blog. The lesson I learned from this experience is that I should always consult with my better half, especially when it comes to publishing  her art. To show that I am truly sorry I will present to you eight more additional wild life paintings and two portraits: one – a copy of a famous painting and the other – a copy of a photograph of the National Geographic magazine. Leave me a note in your comment if you can guess their origin.

Just click on any image to enlarge.

      Peter, I don’t understand Edda’s comment. Could you please translate? Thanks.

        Edda and her husband Dieter read your correct responses to my question and gave you credit for them, crowcanyonjournal. The rest is their own research on the Afghan girl and the Dutch master painter. If you wanted a verbatim translation, I will gladly help you out. Just let me know.

    Ja, das Mädchen von Vermeer und das afghanische Mädchen habe ich erkannt, aber nichts anderes. Mal wieder schöne Bilder. Gruß an Biene, Mitza

      Ja, deine Antwort ist 100% richtig. Biene hat schon so manches Portrait von unserer Familie angefertigt. Die Bilder wirken also so echt und lebensnah. Vielen Dank, Mitza!

    I recognize the Girl With A Pearl Earring, because I read a book about that painting, which I love. And the last photo is the Afghan girl who is standing up for human rights, but I don’t remember her name. (I think that’s her, anyway.)
    And I’m glad that you share the paintings your wife selected! I still think she’s a wonderful artist.

    They look terrific! Your wife is a genius…the depth in each of the paintings is superb!

    Not sure about the origin, though.

    They’re very good again. Like some of your other commenters, I recognized the young lady from the National Geographic photograph and Vermeer’s Girl with a Pearl Earring. (Incidentally, I can’t help but wonder if Vermeer really had some poor young woman pose for hours with that monstrously huge pearl in her ear. It must have been so heavy.)

    Wonderful paintings indeed. I particularly love the raccoon and the girl with the pearl earring. But they are all beautiful, really.
