Brief Visit to Biene’s Studio

Wednesday’s Photos

While the weather feels miserable and the clouds hang depressingly low, it is best to focus on some creative indoor activities. Thanks to the many encouragements from my blogging friends, my wife has been very busy with her rock paintings. The floors are covered with old and new artwork. Here is but a small sample. Enjoy.

Biene’s Rock Painting III

Today I present a few of the other animals of my wife’s rock paintings.  In many cases, she had been able to cover the entire rock thus making use of the form of the rock to bring out the shapes of the animals. Today’s pictures include a wolf, a cougar, a loon, a deer’s head and a cat. Enjoy.

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.

Wednesday’s Photos

For the next couple of weeks, I decided to stray away from the dominant Wednesday’s theme: Natural Splendour of the Arrow Lakes. With up to three feet of snow on the ground, it has become extremely difficult to get to our favourite photo locations. Also when I had mentioned that my wife is doing rock painting in her spare time, many blogging friends asked me to publish some of her work. Most recently, Ulli, who lives in the Black Forest region of Germany, wondered if I could present some of the owls Biene had painted. The first picture has been painted on canvas. Other artwork and rock paintings will follow. Enjoy.

Biene’s Art Work – Part I

Rock Painting

A22

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.
