NEW WORK at FILLINGDON FINE ART

"Strandloper III" by Robyn Gordon

The daffodils are out just in time for the opening of  the "Primary Palette"exhibition at Fillingdon Fine Art. I'm delighted to have 3 pieces in this exhibition including the piece, Strandloper III, above.

The meaning of strandloper ....

1. a member of a Koisan people who lived on the southern shores of southern Africa from prehistoric times until the second millennium AD.

2. a person who collects items on the shore; a beachcomber.





warmly invites you to 
"Primary Palette"
an exhibition of original
paintings, sculpture, ceramics, jewellery and craft

from Saturday 11th - Saturday 25th April 2015
daily 10am- 4pm

at Fillingdon Farm, Piddington, High Wycombe, 
Bucks, HP14 3BL, UK

Other times by appointment

This exhibition features work in the three primary colours of red, blue and yellow by new and regular artists from Kenya, Zambia, Zimbabwe and South Africa; across the media of oils, pastels, bronze, stone, porcelain, silver, shell and many others.  Monochromatic balance is added with a new collection of drawings by master draftsman Arthur Azevedo.  As always there is a wide variety on display to appeal to all tastes and pockets, and each unique, handmade piece has been personally selected to ensure the ultimate in quality and originality.  Entry is free and refreshments are on offer.  A donation is appreciated for our chosen charity Farm Africa (reg. charity number 326901). The work is available to view on our website, which is constantly being updated.  We look forward to welcoming you, and please feel free to tell like-minded friends!

    1. Thanks Mary Jane. Sometimes there is a struggle and sometimes everything flows so easily. Autumn/Winter is my best time. Summer is a long struggle! A life coach many of us know in the blog world, pointed out that each artist has a cycle and once we know what the cycle is we accept the slow times more easily.

    1. Thanks Seth! My photos have improved since I've had my ipad but it doesn't make up for seeing art in person.

  15. Hi M! Thank you! Beach combing is all I can think about at the moment, so there will probably be a few more Strandlopers :-)

  22. I miss your blog, with your thoughts, your feelings, your stories. But wanted to let you know i follow your Tumblr pages religously. If it was Facebook, I would be clicking "like", "like", "like", and also commenting, telling you what each image evoked, and why I liked it, etc. I just wanted to tell you I do love what you post, and it's pleasurable looking at what you see, following that thread of observation and wonder. Thanks so much for that special communication,so welcome and appreciated! Hope you are well! XX

  23. Thank you so much for your support Mary Jo. You give me a lift every time you message me. I really intend to get back to blogging because I miss the connection with readers, artists and bloggers (and I miss delving into my own thoughts and following the thread in posts) but somehow I don't seem to have that kind of time anymore. Tumblr and Pinterest take less research and thought...... and I can fit it in to the lulls while drinking coffee or watching TV in the evenings with hubby. I'm busy with commissions at the moment but I need and want to get back into exploring new ideas which then lead to blogging. It's a different mind set if that makes sense! xoxo

  27. Thanks Dolores. All is well. I just seem to be so busy. I miss artpropelled but find Face Book is a quicker simpler way to blog. I have trouble with photos here for some reason. I'm on FB if you would like to keep up there.
