She is a Dutch artist who lives in Frigiliana and will soon move to Cadiz. Kim creates spiritual paintings. She developed her own style in Mandalas, mixing acrylics with mediums. By practising Mala-meditations she translates energies into her Mandalas. She also works on commission base, she ‘tunes in’ to the energy of the room or the person, inspired by this input she creates a very personal‘Mandela-painting’. Dutch artist Linda Roffel has been fascinated by colour and shape as a means of expression for a long time. She uses that fascination to create sensual portraits of the backs of women. Using Acrylic paint and only a palette knife – she usually works with four pigments at a time: grey, white, brown, yellow and sometimes red. With these deceptively simple ingredients she creates structure, depth and transparency in her images. Three of her works will be shown in the gallery.Italian artist Daniele Vignati was born in Milano in Italy. Daniele creates abstract, colorful and bright images. “The artist gives shape to images which come from a reality unknown. The artist has the ability to make the invisible, visible.” Daniele exhibits her art in Italy and various other European countries. It is the first time she is exhibiting her paintings in Galeria Luz de la Vida. The art of Lieuwke Loth is on permanent show, as well as other paintings from various International Artists. Feel welcome to come around and enjoy the many Artworks in the gallery! http://www.galerialuzdelavida.com

Trip to the Bioparc in Fuengirola
The vist by the Phoenix Club is on the 23rd of March
Bioparc Fuengirola champions a new model of zoo based on respect for nature and the preservation of natural species, a model which has already established itself as a flagship for Europe. It represents is a different concept of zoo. A zoological park where animals live side-by-side, recreating their natural habitat and so fostering their development at all levels. Visitors are stepping inside a true documentary of the deepest tropical woodlands.
The habitats of Africa, Asia and Madagascar are recreated by the themed design of embankments, waterfalls, rocks, trunks and even realistic trees. The creation of the baobab tree, one of the largest artificial trees in the world, standing 25 metres high, set the park’s designers a real challenge. It has now become a landmark of the centre and of the town of Fuengirola itself.
Bioparc is home to such emblematic species as the Sumatra Tiger, featured on the IUCN (International Union for Conservation of Nature) Red List of Threatened Species, in the highest category of “Critically Endangered”. Only 250 specimens remain in the wild in their natural habitat, and the Bioparc has succeeded in breeding the species.
The centre also has exclusive species of such great biological importance as the Malayan False Gavial, bred here successfully for the first time in captivity, and the Blue Duiker, to be found nowhere else in Spain, along with the only group of breeding gorillas in Andalusia.
The centre has in a very short period established itself at the forefront of European zoos, and has as such won widespread recognition both in Spain and beyond.
It recently received an award acknowledging the marvellous reproduction of the enclosure known as “The Mangrove”, which includes a remarkable underwater view of this peculiar ecosystem, home to fish, birds and turtles in grave peril of extinction.
We will also visit Benalmadena Marina where you can have a late lunch. This is not included in the price.
