Marine-Painting, cadre et présentation, being France, first a French lunch meaning from 12,00 to 17,00 !
The lunch being served by our hosts Philippe and Sylvie Bossis at their beautiful mansion.
Lunch starting in classical style with ‘nibbles’, little delicacies each with it’s own distinctive flavour.
Each and every delicious morcele and this including the ‘Pain Surprise’ which is a bread with each layer made of sandwiches with a different filling.
This accompanied with fresh Green Water Melon pieces, these serving to clear your palette between delicacies.
The main course you can guess as barbie’d steak, baked potatoes and salad.
This is naturally accompanied with wide ranging conversations and much laughter, and, this is France, by selected red wines.
After a desert, the framing and then finally we go to, « The Présentation ».
My good friend Gilbert Duval had found a beautiful old frame.
Gilbert when visiting my studio had fallen in love with my painting «Plymouth, Emigration» [76 x 121 cm (30″ x 48″), oils, £15,000.] so requested this beautifully presented miniature.
Philippe had repaired the frame and applied new gold leaf.
My task had been to produce a miniature painting of the famous clipper ‘Samuel Plimsol’ loading migrants at Plymouth.
Your best value, buy or commission from a dedicated artist direct from his studio; invest from a reputable, well established artist who has already produced famous paintings.
