Mousehole (pronounced Mowzel) is one of Cornwall’s most picturesque hamlets with a small and very safe beach in the sheltered part of the harbour. A few hundred yards along the coast of the village lies a huge cave which, so some people say, gives rise to the name of the village – mouse hole! Mousehole developed around its harbour (and of course the fishing fleet that sustained it) appearing in the record books as an important fishing port from as early as 1266, in fact, part of the south quay originates from 1390 – possibly the oldest pier in Cornwall. The fishing industry has declined drastically over the last 100 years, but a few fishing boats maintain the long heritage and tradition of a working harbour, whilst the majority of vessels now lying at anchor are pleasure craft. This large painting takes in the view all along the harbour wall. It measures 100cm x 80cm and has been painted on a narrow canvas with painted sides so is ready to hang or can be framed. It comes with a certificate of authenticity.

My paintings have travelled even further and now live in the USA, Canada and Europe although many of course still
