I am a landscape painter who sometimes includes buildings, sometimes people or even a dog. For three years running now (2009, 2010, 2011) I’ve been coming to La Muse for inspiration and quiet time to do my work where I’ve used the wonderful village landscape of Labastide-Esparbairenque as my subject matter.
