Do you have any goals for your painting?
Yes - I would love to have my own exhibition before I'm 80 . Only a few months to go!
I am happy to say that thanks to the support and encouragement from my "complete artist" friends I was able to achieve this at a wonderful 80th birthday party. Thank you all!
Oh Robin, it's an absolute honoured to accept your friendship.
I would like to thank you for your encouragement comments about my paintings. I would also like to let you know that your painting are exquisite. You are pro artist!
For example, if you would crop the picture of you in your studio, and shown only part of you and the painting behind you, without the easel and the shade on the wall, I would be convinced that the scenery behind you was the action outside your window in the moment when the photo was taken. Is so good as are the rest in your gallery.
So lovely to get your friend request Robin. Your paintings are exquisite - I wouldn't like to pick one I like best because there are so many! I just love the little South Island Robin and the story behind the painting. I hope a good price was received at auction to help beautify Taihape - a place where my husband and I have both had family connections and visited many times when our children were young.
Oh blast, I had just written on your page and accidentally deleted it! Your paintings are wonderful Robin, I wish I was half as talented as you! We are living in Te Awamutu now, having been in the King Country for about 40years. I was thinking you must have had a very cold winter in Taihape, it's been cold enough here this year. I meet Maria Woolrich at an exhibition in Te Kuiti last year, so nice to see her on here. :)
Hi Robin, gosh it seems a little while since I have written to you. How is your sister-in-law. Do hope she is handling life by herself a little easier now. It may take a little while. Do hope you are fit and well. Gosh, I did say we must catch up with each other, would still love to do that. I work on Thursday and Friday and any day or days between would be great. Would it suit you to catch up either 11 & 12 August or 18 & 19 August. I see Richard has got Workshop 34 up now so looking forward to doing that. I have been doing some painting projects and will be putting them up to view. Are you doing anything at the moment. look forward to hearing back from you. :-) maria
Robin I am absolutely delighted to accept your friendship! Thank you very much for the invite, I appreciate it very much and you just made me smile after an exhausting few days with real life, other than art. :-)
That would be great Robin! Maybe we could have lunch together. Let me know next time you are coming down. My husband and I are flying to Dunedin this Thursday and back Tuesday but apart from that any day except Sunday would suit me.
Yes Robin, I have also been thinking it would be nice to meet up with you. If you are in Palmerston North sometime give me a ring on 3572276. I love your paintings and have been having a look at your website. Do you ever give art classes? I take classes with Vonnie Sterritt and really enjoy them.
