The gallery exhibits a mixture of paintings, prints, sculpture and ceramics.
My work on display consists of acrylic on canvas landscapes from the
South West and framed acrylic on board landscapes of the Scottish lochs.

from the warmth of the sea to the clifftop from where I've just descended.
I walk back up the dusty slope to the garden of the taverna that overlooks the
bay and order a beer.
I sit in the shade of a pine tree and listen to music through my headphones.
