An artist in residence



Sample portrait - please click to enlarge

We were approached a few days ago by a successful local artist - Mike Hindle with the idea of providing portraits of our guests at Ednovean Farm. After some thought we agreed, as very often our guests would like to take some art home from Cornwall and don't quite find the "right" picture. What better compensation than to relax for an hour in the comfort of your bedroom, one of our terraces or the garden for a gentle portrait with still an incisive insight of your character. So Mike will be available to the guests at Ednovean Farm for commissions in the afternoon at the very reasonable rate of £80 for a very personal holiday souvenir ( or perfect pressie for Mum!)

I visited his site at www.mikehindle.com and particularly enjoyed his almost impressionistic sea scapes that were almost ethereal but do visit and decide for yourself. Below is a list of his forthcoming exhibitions should you miss the opportunity of staying at Ednovean Farm.
