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.

This is a small but compact gallery situated right on the Porthleven quayside. It is well lit and material is well presented and the material is predominantly that of local accomplished artists and well worth a visit.
