Francois (pronounced Fransway by the 43 residents) is surrounded by either massive cliffs or water. Our very warm and caring hosts were Doris and George Fudge who invited us into their home and treated us like family. We ate with them at their table and spent evenings sitting in their living room chatting with them. A truly remarkable experience. These first two paintings are of the cliffs with a few of the homes tucked up against them.
I am now excited by acrylic paint and I think that this very intense week has improved both my work and my attitude towards myself as an artist. I am excited about where this is heading. More of my Newfoundland paintings can be found at johnchristie.ca
