dartmoor-1-31……………………………………………………………Lovely feedback was received from previous buyers:

Dear Mr Horner, As a 50th Wedding Anniversary present to ourselves we purchased from the White Wood Gallery in Ashburton your oil painting entitled "Approaching Rain near Princetown, Dartmoor" (see above). My wife and I have known, loved and frequently visited Dartmoor since we were both young and we felt your painting captures the atmosphere of the Moor very well. We are generally more familiar with the eastern side of the Moor - i.e. Chagford/ Haytor/Hound Tor - and not so familiar with the area around Princetown. We wondered if you were able to give some more detail of the location from which your painting was taken?

If you are in Ilfracombe, North Devon this year, go down to 8 High Street and check out the beautiful seascapes that are on display at Jessica Dove’s gallery.

After running a very successful party shop in Oxford for many years, Jessica Dove opened her gallery in June 2013 with the aim to brighten up the heart of the popular seaside resort. She talks about the town in an interview with

Since being erected on Ilfracombe Pier in 2012, Damien Hirst’s 60ft bronze statue has polarised opinion in the town. VERITY has become the flagship of art within Ilfracombe, according to the mayor, but residents have not disputed that Verity has attracted more visitors to the area, including an influx of artists who are all contributing to the town’s art scene, which has definitely become more lively since Verity’s arrival.

She goes on:

Obviously most people are going down to the harbour to see Damian Hirst’s sculpture Verity, but I am hoping they will also come up to the High Street, because I have many local and international artists in here. I am also very excited about presenting some of Ric Horner’s striking seascapes of Woolacombe Beach and the Harbour, where Damian Hirst’s famous restaurant The Quay is situated.
