Biene’s Eagles

Wednesday’s Photos

Last week I presented a few of Biene’s owls which she had painted on rocks. Another common bird, which had made a spectacular come-back in our area in the last fifty years, is the bald eagle. No wonder that my wife has chosen this majestic bird of prey for her artwork. She paints mostly in the summer in a quiet corner at our local campsite surrounded by all the natural wonders. Lately, to overcome the depressing often grey winter months, she has taken up new projects of rock paintings in her studio located in our backyard. Responding to your encouraging comments on last week’s post, she is returning to her artistic activities she loves so dearly. Enjoy.

  1. I see bald eagles catching fish every summer, in the Montezuma wildlife refuge, and carrying them to their nests, big heaps of sticks, which are built on top of metal transmission towers, kind of an odd sight.
    These paintings are very well done! They’re majestic creatures, but the artist has also gotten the fierceness.

  2. Deine Frau ist eine großartige Künstlerin! Ich bin heute genauso begeistert, wie schon letzten Mittwoch. Ich habe während der Woche immer mal wieder an die Eulen gedacht und mich gefragt, ob wir nicht tauschen sollen, ein Eulenstein gegen ein Eulenbild von mir?! Lieber Peter, frage deine Frau doch einmal und dann schauen wir ob und wie wir zueinander kommen. Okay?!
    Herzliche Grüße

  3. My favorite among these is the third. I like the way the eagle’s head, turned to the right, seems to balance the flow of the rock to the left. Just this past weekend, a family at a local nature preserve was ecstatic; they had seen a bald eagle! I didn’t get to see that bird, but being able to see Bienes’ eagles helps to make up for that.

  4. Bravo Biene, you a truly talented artist. What my eye was drawn to first, were the eyes of the eagles, and than how you chose the shape of the rock according how you positioned the eagles face. What paints to you use, is that charcoal or any other interesting material? Thank you Peter for bringing Biene’s talent alive through this post here.

    1. Ah, lieber Helmuth, du hast mir mit deinem lieben Kommentar eine große Freude bereitet. Meine Frau hat sich durch die vielen Kommentare ermuntern lassen und hat die Steinmalerei in ihrem Studio wieder aufgenommen. Herzlichen Dank!
