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.

#FridayPainting : Surfer, Red Beach

Painting above - Surfer, Red Beach

This October the annual CLIC Sargent Ball was held in Newquay, Cornwall - where I went to school and lived until 2008.  A huge collection of fabulous things are donated for the auction during the evening.  This year, my large Red Surfer painting struck me as the perfect choice.  It went down a storm!  And helped raise an outstanding £6,500.00 to donate to the UK's leading cancer charity for children and young people.  It's truly heartwarming to know that this charity is working to establish specialist nurses who help children and young people spend less time in hospital, and more time at home.  Many thanks to everyone who took part in the event, and of course, the lovely local couple who dug deep and bought my painting, you made us all very happy.

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