Love, Peace and Picnics.
An exhibition of Fun, Fancy and Frivolity by Lynda Bell.

Come and join us for the opening Night on Tuesday 1st September 5 pm till 7 pm, for drinks and nibbles but most importantly, to meet Lynda and enjoy her beautiful art work.

Picnics are a time to relax and enjoy life. They are a great way to come together as a family, a group of friends or to have a romantic tryst. My memories of picnics are always embedded with fun and joy. The food is tasty, the people are relaxed and smiling and the scenery is inspiring.

Fun and joy are the first things that always spark from my paintings. I want to encourage smiles and inspire happiness. The worlds within the canvases become possibilities for our own lives. They are worlds in which all things are possible if you can imagine it; They are worlds where animals are reminding us of their sentient nature, their integral part of our lives and the future of this planet of ours.

This exhibition plan sparked when I painted the painting: ‘Forest Picnic’ for the Northland Arts Society Annual Calendar competition. It won first prize and ended up on the cover of this year’s calendar. As soon as I painted it, I wanted to paint more. Forest Picnic is focused on animals that live in New Zealand, so I decided to paint groups of animals from various parts of the world – all coming together for a picnic of sorts – a gathering in celebration of life, oneness and liberation. The food within the paintings, symbolise sweetness and joy, with fruit in particular symbolising abundance.

This exhibition is for people of all ages. A love of colour, joy and cuteness should never leave us as we grow older, and can always come back to us, to bring new light and happiness into our lives.
