It’s been an eventful week, our 6 day sailing trip to Kas curtailed by the stomach bug that’s going around. So although we’ve been out of action I managed to paint this alternative Sovalye Island view eliminating the greens and yellows but still portraying an old house on an island, I like it but appreciation is scarce.

After many weeks work, I also managed to complete, pack and send, on it’s long journey to Australia, a large wedding portrait of my niece Caroline and Jon. As it’s a surprise I can’t publish until it arrives so more on that to come.

Just offshore lıes Şovalye Island. running North-South with Calis beach a stone’s throw from the Northern tip and the main Fethiye channel to the South.  Property prices on the island are astronomical by local standards, around a million pounds for a plot, but you do get relative privacy, a quiet enviroment and stunning views for your money. Personally I think a small island is great as a holiday hideaway but I couldn’t live on one.  I would go insane from the condition I call the  “Did you remember the milk, darling?” syndrome.
