Virginia Randolph Bueide paintings are always influenced by her surroundings, whether it be from time spent in France or Italy, New York, Los Angeles, or Austin, Texas. In the last few years, inspiration has arisen from the ponds, lakes and woodlands near her home in Minnesota.
Ginny Bueide’s paintings are powerfully imbued with her genuine sense of wonderment. With a wry sense of humor as well, she has in her long career portrayed not only lakes and waterlilies, but also has painted scenes to include: farm life, city scenes, farmer’s markets and domestic kitchens, gardens and swimming pools. Her eye catches peacefulness in a scene, but is alert to the energy of beings as well — from children to chickens and other creatures. Most recently Bueide’s paintings have been manifesting her awe for a small community of deer who almost daily inhabit the tiny triangular park across from her home.
Virginia Randolph Bueide’s paintings, prints and drawings are included in museum, corporate and numerous private collections throughout the United States and France. She has also been a recipient of the prestigious Pollock-Krasner Foundation grant, recognizing the exceptional quality of her work.
