Exhibition: Vernissage de l’exposition de peintures

An exhibition of portraits and other French impressions was held at the Moulin de Larroque paper mill in Couze St Front in the Dordogne, France. The area is renown for its wonderful light and lushness which is much loved by artists. The work utilised local hand made paper – a radical change for Janis as she usually works on large canvas, and was quite challenging, as each paper is individual and reacts differently. The paper is made at a mill close to where she lives. Moulin de Larroque is one of the last bastions of this precious and important craft.
