Un des plus beaux village de France

An unexpected exhibition will run to the end of September.

Today we disconcerted and surprised Gordon Frickers by having him place a small but very special exhibition of landscape paintings of the Tarn in the beautiful Hotel des Consuls, right in the centre of the historic 13th century Castelnau de Montmiral, the Place des Arcades.

The hotel, open all day every day is easy to find and visit, now run by the very amicable Helene and Marc Gaudechon the hotel retains its traditional character, is deseptively spacious and charming inside including a large (for Castelnau de Montmiral) private terrace and garden and a small swimming pool; room prices start from 48 Euros, tel: +33 (0)5 63 33 17 44 or view www.hoteldesconsuls.com (email: hoteldesconsuls@nullorange.fr), we unreservedly recommend this hotel.

The landscape paintings on show were all painted in the area when Gordon Frickers was experimenting with his odd colour vision, none were intended for sale yet have gained quite a following in England being noted for their colour, depth, rhythms, vibrancy and much more.Ricks__valle_de_Vere_IMG_7441_d.jpg

If they sell well I’ll paint some new versions, if not I’ll continue to focus on marine painting.
