We’ve lived right here for approximately thirty-five a long time, and from the very starting it was our intention to make the surrounding landscape a haven  for painting. That, coupled with the delightful existence of our personal a few daughters, and with their numerous friends, meant that I would under no circumstances absence for topics or types!

   I have completely enjoyed the decades of work, and, looking again about the numerous paintings that I have finished listed here, it is a joy to observe the development of equally the gardens, and the fantastic relatives and mates that have provided me so many hrs of inspiration.”
