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.

CLIC Sargent Charity Ball in Newquay, Cornwall

Every day, 10 children and young people in the UK hear the shocking news they have cancer - Quote from CLIC Sargent Charity, for children who have cancer.

Life changes over night.  Treatment starts immediately.  Families are swept away on a tide of medication.  You can imagine the stress, so hard to bear.  CLIC Sargent is the UK's leading cancer charity for children and young people, and their families.They give strength and offer comfort. They are working to establish specialist nurses who will help children and young people spend less time in hospital and more time at home.
