Welcome to the blog of Melanie McDonald ! I'm a professional artist, my life is divided between my home in Newquay, Cornwall and my renovation project - an 18th Century farm - in North Brittany, France. My inspiration comes from the beautiful beaches, skies and seas of Cornwall, Brittany and Scotland. This is where I share my paintings and photographs, I hope it inspires you.

Moving to France - Three weeks and counting
Three weeks today we'll be boarding a ferry to France. We'll be swapping our house by the sea for 'Gauguin's Loft' and a different life. A friend of ours died suddenly a year ago and on the way to the funeral we decided to make some changes. At the funeral wake, which was held where we were married, we told our friends about the move. Sometimes it takes a thunderbolt to make decisions.
