Thank you for your kind words. Roger's work is beautiful and he always paints 'en plein air' around the harbour side. We had a lovely chat with him yesterday too. So glad you love his work too.

Do pop in to The Custom House Gallery if you're visiting Porthleven. There is a really interesting choice of paintings, sculpture and glass, all from local artists inspired by the beautiful Cornish countryside.
