When Painting on Rocks Becomes Part of Your Soul - Interview with Ineke Burgman, Remarkable Artist of The Netherlands

RSS
"Every stone I paint becomes part of my soul. Sometimes it's hard to let it go, but how much happier can you be when you see people touched by your work?", Ineke Burgman
 
I will begin our story today by inviting you to a simple exercise: name ten things that would make you happy. Ten things in 10 seconds. I'll let you count...then leave a comment at the end of this article. Tell us how it worked for you. Have you managed to find ten things that would make you the happiest in ten seconds?
Well, I must tell you when I took this challenge a few years ago, I lost it. I started ruminating about the big things: environment, politics, economy...I lost because I had forgotten the little things, the ones inside the heart, the real ones that are with us at all times, waiting to be discovered. I recently thought again of such things: the morning sky through the open window, the rainbow after the rain, a memory from childhood travels, a smile in the street...

 

When I met Ineke's rocks a few months ago I had to stop. The challenge of ten things in ten seconds came back to me. The ten things were there, in every piece of her painted rocks: the smiles, joy, positive thoughts, the good hopes, the fun...all in just a touch of colours.

Let me take you on a journey to the fantastic Netherlands, where the astounding rock artist of the RockStreet Collective group, Ineke Burgman lives and creates. Enjoy!

 

"I live in the north of the Netherlands in a very little place we have recently moved to, called Vledder. We will stay here for just one year while building our own barn-house in the country side in this part of the country. Nature here is amazing, the woods, the pools, all the different animals, it`s such a privilege to live here!

Rocks and shells are very special for me. You have to feel a rock, its strength, its softness, its story...I have so many stones, but it's still difficult for me to find the right one for a painting...

I remember, as a child, I was always looking down, searching for shells, stones, wood, anything nature put before my feet. I still do this....I can spend hours on a beach or near a river searching for stones. I feel lucky to be able to travel to beautiful places with plenty of rocks around our place.

How I started painting? Well, I always loved painting as a child. One day I saw a picture of painted stones in a magazine. I saved it for a few years! It was something I wanted to try when I had more time... In 2014 I bought a black and a white acrylic paint pen and started to paint little birds and sheep on rocks.

 

I was leaving the little rocks in all kind of places and was hoping that someone would be happy with them. I loved to do this. Friends and family took my rocks all over the world to leave them there. It was so much fun! People could send me an email when they found the rock. After a while people also came asking to paint a stone for them. Great, I thought! I can make people happy with my art!

 

There are so many stories from people who ask me to paint that special stone for them. Happy stories and sad stories. I have painted many memory-stones each with its own special story. I am also making little pocket-stones as a support for someone who needs a rock's strength.

Together with my friend Caroline, we developed our Stone-Card product. She makes a little card and I paint a little stone. Together they become a special and unique gift to send to the dear ones. People buy the Stone-Card and most of the money goes to different charities.

I am learning every day, I want to get better every day, but I'am also happy with how I paint now. I use paint pens, permanent fine liners and ink & penThe only thing I am worrying about is the sealing. It changes the natural color of the stone and not always for the better.

 

Here is the rock with a little girl, which I drew in 15 minutes. It represents my love for young childrenI just retired last summer as a teacher after many years of working with young ones. They were such an inspiration for my paintings! I used to give them my painted rocks and they painted rocks for me. Those were my treasures...

I would like to end with my big advice for everyone: start painting on rocks. Feel the joy and your life will never be the same. I, personally, LOVE IT!!"

    what a wonderful world we are living in, i still doubt this spell caster how he did it!!! I am so happy to let the whole world know how this powerful spell caster saved my marriage.Everything was going down the drain as my husband can not stop cheating on me with other women. It became used to always heating on me. I tried to make him stop, but I couldn’t help the situation, the more I tried, the harder it became. At times we will fight and go apart for some months and we will come back again just because of our kids. One day a friend told me about this spell caster who helped her too, his name is Dr.oku, she said he uses white magic spells to solve spiritual problems. I decided to give it a try, I contacted him and he told me it will take just 2 to 3 days and I will see great changes in my husband. He actually cast a spell, believe me after 2 to 3 days of the spell, my husband was confessing different names of women he has slept with. He begged for forgiveness and never to try it again. From that day till now, my mind is at rest. My husband dislikes every other woman on earth except me. And am so happy to have him for myself alone.The spell caster’s contact is okutemple@gmail.com you can also contact him on whatsapp +2347053113465

    Thought i had lost my savings of 33 years after being convinced to invest in crypto currency and it turned out to be a scheme, i had searched the web tirelessly, spoken to few friends and they all said my savings were gone… I stumbled on a post ( totally unrelated to recovering my funds, i think this was about catching a cheating partner), i reached out to the infiltrator and i must tell you this has been the best decision i have taken in a very long while. HackingProfessional helped trace my coins and retrieved them It seemed so unreal. I am definitely not investing in crypto currencies anymore or at least until i do thorough background checks… If you sense you have been ripped off, i suggest you act promptly, you can reach HackingProfessional on hack4wise @gmail com

    HOW CAN I GET MY BITCOIN BACK AND SECURE MY WALLET? / OPIMISTIC HACKER GAIUS, A CEYBER RECOVERY MASTER

    Putting money into cryptocurrencies is a wise move. When I first started investing in cryptocurrencies, I made an investment in a fictitious trading organization that stole $7 BTC and over 170,600 Dogecoin from me. It was a terrible moment for me; I really needed a recovery specialist to help me get my money back, and OPTIMISTIC HACKER GAIUS saved the day. From the beginning to the conclusion, he was helpful in getting my money back from the fraudulent firm and getting me on a reliable trading platform where I made a lot of money. Please make use of the services, I beg you.

    THIS IS REAL. I REPEAT, THIS IS REAL. The black mirror is real, the black mirror is really powerful, effective and 100% reliable. My name is Walter Brian, I want to thank Dada Magical for giving his black mirror to me. Since he gave me his black mirror, I became rich, successful, protected, informed and powerful. I was browsing through the internet one day when I saw multiple testimonies on how Dada Magical has helped so many people with his black mirror. I thought it was a joke at first but I gave it a try and contacted him. He sold the black mirror to me and told me how to use it and all that I need to do. I followed the instructions just as he told me and to my greatest surprise, it worked just as he told me. The black mirror is still working for me. The mirror also brings good luck, blessings and information. Contact Dada Magical now on his email; Dadablackmirrors@gmail.com and he will help you also with the black mirror just the same way he helped me. Thank you Great Dada Magical.
