Wine Village Project:

The major focus this year is on the ‘Picturesque Wine Villages of Bordeaux’ project.

I’ve visited the region 4 more times this year and conclude I could not have made a better choice.  Sauveterre_IMG_8560.JPG_d.JPG

Discover Bordeaux with an artist as your guide, follow the story as I work with this truly an amazing fascinating the region.

No one has previously specifically focused on the beautiful villages in the Bordeaux regions.

Five of this autumn’s paintings sold before the oils were dry to an investor who would like a ‘Bordeaux wall’.

We also proposed a bi-lingual book. A sample ‘proposed’ chapter is available as a PDF. The book will be an introduction through the perspective of an artist to much more than the wines of the region.


Web site, a major technical upgrade is ongoing.

Many ‘modernisation’ problems remain many have been overcome.

As I write payment is not possible via the Print galley page however in ‘How to Order’, the vital Payments Page works nicely.

The site potential is considerable.


New paintings:

The wine village series is progressing steadily. Also a dashing 30 x 48” painting of the French ‘frigate of liberty’  Hermione” is on the easel

I am preparing a dramatic book cover for best selling WW2 author David J B Smith and will be painting a 2 m wide “Gaillac Quay 1850” for the Wine Museum (https://vimeo.com/76248472) near Gaillac.



Watercolours start at a very modest £450, oils from a very affordable £500.
