Morning in Honfleur (£99)

My last night was in Honfleur about an hour and half from Bayeaux and Port en Bessin, you can't help but be impressed with this gorgeous little town centred around the old harbour, at 8 am I found it difficult to settle but knew I'd have to get on with as the harbourside cafe's would soon be full of people. Once this was finished I had time for a quick cuppa and then off to Calais and the ferry! Click the image to see the finished painting.

Mont Saint Michel. (£99)

I am making my way back to the UK and this time taking a slight detour to visit a few places along the way. The first is Mont Saint Michel on the Normandy coast. It was a dull and damp day but I was determined to get the paints out. You can see a better image of the painting by clicking here.

Neighbours en France, £99 each.

These two little houses sit side by side in the old village, they provided a great subject for my painters from Oregon this Summer. Not lived in now but still cared for and there was a bumper harvest of grapes this year from the vine that spreads across them. I think they're gorgeous but too much of a renovation project for me, I'll just enjoy painting them. I've placed them together here and it would be a shame to part them! £99 each.

Another portrait, this one is of my neighbours' horses, they often walk past me in the mornings accompanied by Jasper the Dalmation who is usually on the lookout for any baguettes that have been left on village doorsteps by the boulanger.
