Pont Creek



This is a small oil painting for the Art in the Garden fund raising event for the Historical Society at the Le Moyne Garden in Washington this coming Sunday afternoon (Sept 9th). The house is on a small tributary off the Fowey river in Cornwall, England and is owned by the National Trust and can be rented. It is a delightful place for a holiday. Wonderful walks, beaches, pubs, (pubs on beaches) and sailing, scuba diving and gardens and National Trust houses to visit.Try to go during regatta week in late August if you get the chance. Lots to do and completely picturesque .

This such a good capture of the calm at Pont (...when the spring tide is not ebbing or flowing in a rushing rush under the bridge). You have caught the serenity and timelessness of the place.
