This is simply a blog with lots of photos of guests who have visited La Petite Galerie over the last dozen or so years - most of them show the results they’ve achieved when painting with me en plein air in a nearby village. In amongst them are many other more personal photographs showing the kind of things we get up to in France during the year. Here’s the link:

All Fall Down

During the Nazi Occupation in World War Two, active resistance in France was certainly a long time coming. During those bleak and frightening years, the primary objective of most French citizens was to simply keep their heads down and to get on with their lives. In war there are no winners - only losers - and through some of the fictionalized events described in All Fall Down, I hope I have been able to provide an insight into how complex and dangerous these dark years were for the people of France. Warning:  Some of the themes expressed by certain characters may offend some readers.
