“Mystical Peeps” by Bonnie Bews Charcoal drawing on glass, 34”x15″
“Spring Peepers are one of the first signs that spring is here. This spring came on early and it seemed we went from winter to summer then slipped back into chilly weather for a few weeks. Did that stop the Spring Peepers from singing their chorus? Nope! They steadily kept going.
What a beautiful sound they make. I love hearing them chirp. I often wonder how they all know to stop simultaneously then start up again…..very mystical indeed!
These three peepers are hanging out in my crabapple tree. Perhaps it’s the help of the fairies that keeps these guys on chorus. ‘Mystical Peeps’ can be seen hanging in my garden at my studio in Bracebridge.”
About the artist:
Bonnie Bews studied reverse glass painting and drawing 29 years ago in Bavaria Germany. Since then, Bews has devoted her career solely to this technique. Her subject matter comes from her environment, be it with Muskoka wildlife or the botanicals she grows in her garden. Most of her pieces do capture a fairy or two, they seem to find their way into her work.
In 2019 she unveiled a 16’x20’ historical glass wall called ‘Muskoka – etched in time’ this can be seen at her studio along with last year’s installation ‘Silent Hero’ which is set in a quaint pergola.
