Portfolios, pedals, people and pop-ups – Painted Wolf Wines in 2013 | Painted Wolf Wines

In Zimbabwe, we shared the Taste of Africa event at the Mukuvisi Woodlands with Painted Wolf Wines..for which I painted a portrait of Claw and her pups…Paul Funston’s photo of Claw is gorgeous…

My  painting of Claw was acrylic on canvas…..and from that we created invitation flyers for Taste of Africa………

Thereafter we  enjoyed the Painted Wolf Pack’s  company on Pedals 4 Paws rides through Mana, Save Valley Conservancy, Chilo Gorge Safari Lodge and Gonarezhou.

Much delicious Painted Wolf Wine was drunk at Chilo Gorge Safari Lodge, who support the Painted Wolf Pack and regularly serve their wines to delighted guests!

This bicycle marathon raised awareness and funds for the two excellent Zimbabwean research, education and conservation programmes,  AWCF and PDC. The schools en route, adjacent to wild dog areas, contributed art and were empowered to better appreciate these gentle predators, and the role they have to play in the eco-system…

Later in the year, in London, when Clive Stockil received the Prince William Award for Conservation in Africa, we were honoured to meet and chat to Prince William and Princess Kate, and we also enjoyed Jeremy’s company at the Tusk Trust Conservation Awards. The Duke and Duchess of Cambridge were out first time since the birth of Prince George, and were engaging, questioning and committed to supporting real Conservation issues in Africa, all extremely heartwarming…

Prince William states:

To me, projects supported by Tusk — particularly those which combine the protection of endangered species with innovative initiatives for alleviating poverty in remote rural communities show a clear way forward”.

Later in the year, we relished Painted Wolf Wines at the Royal Geographic Talk that Clive gave…what a treat!
I was honoured to contribute a painting to Jeremy’s excellent Pop Up event in London -sad I could not be there in person…

About wineandwilddogs

Lin Barrie The Save Valley Conservancy stretches along the upper reaches of the great Save River in the south east of Zimbabwe. The Gonarezhou National Park laps against the southern banks of the Save River and between these two nestles the Malilangwe Wildlife Reserve. These three celebrated wildlife areas form part of the Greater Limpopo Transfrontier Conservation Area, (GLTFCA)- a unique wilderness jewel which is home to the “Big Five” (endangered Black and White rhinos, elephants, buffalo, lion, leopard) and the ”Little Six” (Klipspringer, Suni, Duiker, Steenbok, Sharpe's Grysbok and Oribi). Endangered African wild dogs, Cheetah, Brown hyena, Bat-eared foxes and a host of special birds and plants contribute to the immense variety of this ecosystem. Communities around the GLTFCA contribute to innovative partnerships with National Parks and the private sector, forming a sound base on which to manage social, economic and environmental issues. This is home to artist and writer Lin Barrie and her life partner, conservationist Clive Stockil. Expressing her hopes, fears and love for this special ecosystem with oil paints on canvas, Lin Barrie believes that the essence of a landscape, person or animal, can only truly be captured by direct observation. Lin Barrie states: “Through my art, and my writing, I feel an intimate connection with the natural world, and from my extensive field sketches of wild animals, people and landscapes, I create larger works on canvas. Lin's work is in various public and private collections in South Africa, Kenya, Zimbabwe, Australia, England, Canada, Sweden and the United States of America. She is represented by galleries in South Africa, Zimbabwe, England, Kenya and Florida, USA.
