Paintings of our Valley

Jonny just gets the feel of the landscape around here, wonderful undulating hills, ever changing hues of green and the autumn colours can take your breath away. I keep telling him to paint small domestic paintings (hoping they will sell) but he can’t help himself and needs to do BIG as the vista’s are BIG and sweeping, from one side of ones vision to the other.

About Fiona Gordon

I am a mother and now a proud grandmother of two beautiful boys. I am married to Jon Lincoln-Gordon a wonderful landscape artist and teacher. I have worked as a mental health nurse for many years and understand the importance of nature and creativity to our mental health. I love living in our tranquil valley in Devon, I have a small flock of Jacob sheep and use their fleece to spin, dye, weave, knit and crochet. I grow a lot of my own dye stuffs and am never more happy than boiling up flowers heads and dying my own wool, well maybe when I have finished a project having created it from scratch. We decided to share our little bit of heaven by doing some Glamping, we have three old caravans we have restored so people can come and stay and top up on some peace and calm.

  1. These are beautiful, they look like the English countryside. I like the malleability of the paint in the foreground as it contrasts so well with the more softer strokes in the background. Lovely work!
