Cherries from Chauvet's Orchard
Publisher : Red Ochre Press
When an English painter moves to Provence in search of the muse he is looking not only for artistic fulfillment but also for love, family and community. This funny and touching memoir chronicles his unconventional route towards almost everything he desires whilst painting a vivid picture of how hard it can be for one man to face a blank canvas, even in paradise.
