Wine Village Project:

A major focus this year is the ‘Picturesque Wine Villages of Bordeaux’ project.

I visited the region 5 more times last year and more visits soon.

I could not have made a better choice, the Bordeaux region is amazing.

Six of last autumn’s paintings sold before the oils were dry to make a ‘Bordeaux wall’.

A bi-lingual book is being prepared, probably to be produced in Plymouth.

A sample ‘proposed’ chapter to promote this project is available as a PDF.


Web site, a major technical upgrade remains ongoing.

A second and new site is being prepared to display the landscapes in particular of the Bordeaux region

The site’s earning potential is considerable.


New paintings:

Work has started on what will be an amazing painting, a 2 m wide of “Gaillac Quay 1863” for The museum ‘inVINcible VIGNEron’ which gives you an insight into the wine industry, a treasure of French culture, how ithas grown and changed from the 17thcentury to the 20thcentury.(https://vimeo.com/76248472)

Two dramatic book covers have just been completed, one for for best selling WW2 author David J B Smith, the other for a company in Oman who already have a best seller using one of my paintings
