Introduction I am living in France on a small farm with my partner, George, and various animals. We have 3 geese and 7 sheep, three ducks, and 2 cats. I paint daily in oils on canvas. We live in The Morvan, a National Park in France. It has some very beautiful scenery, and a low population.It has wonderful tracks for walking created by the Romans. As an area not reached by many tourists it's largely unspoilt.
