After moving to the West Country Michael had a solo exhibition covering all his subjects that sold 48 of the 50 paintings on the opening night.

The Customers

".. the real highlight for me was the reaction of the audience when your painting was presented. Clearly the guests were aware that we were presenting some form of picture as the rear of the frame was evident, but the sheer gasp of amazement when I turned it round to present was truly amazing and so uplifting. Thank you so very much." (Letter from Exxon Mobil executive after the naming ceremony of the Pavel Chernysh - a ship Michael painted in 2006.



Michael's landscapes reflect the beautiful part of Devon where he lives; even the chickens and cows breathe life as he periodically looks after a friend's farm!
