Alarm ! Panic ?

To bring you a better experience, both my web sites are being refined.

To bring you easier navigation, clearer texts, simplified buying, my ‘marine art’ web site may briefly be off line at times over the next few months. is undergoing its first major upgrade since 2003.

Receiving similar attention, the newer site [mostly landscapes] will also go off line for brief periods.

This is to help you see the trees in the wood.

Our aim is nothing less than the most distinctive, informative, user friendly, marine and landscape art web sites on the Internet.

If the sites give you any problems keep calm, do have confidence in us.

Don’t hesitate to fire a gun, hoist a signal.

Since starting to post ‘wine village’ pictures on Twitter there has been a noticeable surge in followers world wide including professionals. It is very encouraging … Read more

Special eyes

Landscape paintings, landscape art, open ended experimenting in the Tarn

French landscape paintings have preoccupied me today, I have continued sorting out my French landscape art today, a process started-stopped-started since last New Year…

This landscape art was conceived not for sale but as open ended research, an artist’s response to discovering and exploring his powerful colour experience as caused by eyes that literally don’t have a normal colour experience.CdM_Prommenade_IMG_0686_d.JPG
