Cutlass? something I’d like to share with you, received today by email from a good client of few but meaningful words:
“Gordon – The painting is here and it looks magnificent! Thank you so much.
When I get it hung I will send you a photo of it hanging“.
La Frigate de Libertie ‘Hermione‘ ~ steady progress, the creative process with this new painting, the hull has changed. The hull shape of this Hermione is now reasonably ship shape so I’ll press on with the background and begin detailing the frigate.
I got a nice shine and bit of a tan too, it was 35 C most of the afternoon.
LES QUAIS DE GAILLAC – SVP, Avez-vous des informations ?
Today the most obvious change was made to the large Gabarre in the fore ground, other changes are more subtle.
Tomorrow I resume work on “The Port of Gaillac 1863”.
Charlestown, Cornwall is in the news again. Co incidentally I sold another print of Charlestown last week to a gentleman booked to stay in the Habour Inn quite soon. The painting is an early example of my work, maybe I’ll have time to return to this favourite subject soon. I too have many happy memories of Charlestown from when I lived in Cornwall and later visiting from Plymouth with my family.
Last Monday the West Briton reported today the BBC One costume drama Poldark returned to its spiritual home 37 years after the first series was broadcast.
Paintings sold, see below, quiet satisfaction. Three of the newer ‘Picturesque Wine Villages of Bordeaux’ series of paintings have sold.
The couple of tranquil Bommes in the commune of Sauternes and the vivant sketch ‘Dancing Vines’ made at Sauveterre de Guyenne in Entre Deux Mers.
Chez Niko: We have a very new very French venue Chez Niko, already favoured by artists, a good sign, in the 13 th century bastide village of Castelnau de Montmiral. Does good food, week day prices at week ends, wine and beer in a very atmospheric very SW France setting appeal?
