Flamingo Flight; All Things Connected; My Delight!

Lin Barrie, Flamingo Flight, All Things Connected, acrylic on canvas, 80 x 200 cm –

This painting is a portrayal of Flamingoes in flight, celebrating the biodiversity of ecosystems, especially on the West Coast of Africa, and the inter-connectedness of all things…

the web of life, the fragility of life…

All things connected…. my mantra is biodiversity, ecosystems, one world, our earth….

Our responsibility as artists, as conservationists, is to look our fellow earth inhabitants in the eye and embrace the multitude of life around us.

I have been inspired to paint these flying pink perfections, having watched flamingoes fly past me at eye level from the high Chilo Safari Lodge deck overlooking the great Save River in Zimbabwe, (en route from Mozambique to Namibia I would guess, and stopping over at the ephemeral pans of Gonarezhou National Park).

The Fine Art Gallery, Swakopmund, Namibia, is featuring my art in their Wildlife Art Exhibition online, and favourite works can be voted for!

Peace Parks work tirelessly in Africa for biodiversity…

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.
