When choosing  a picture
If you are looking for a picture for a wall space the most impotant consideration is to measure the approximate size of  the space and either call at the barge gallery where we have a great variety of pictures or look on this website first and then contact me. Most of the images on the site can be printed in various sizes and should you select 2 or 3 and are not sure which will suit your decor I will call and show the pictures in the space and should you choose one I will hang it for you. There is obviously no charge for this service. The images can be ordered as canvas prints or fine art prints in mounts.mes and we have a variety of blank cards of the local area.

My wife Josephine ( whose paintings can be seen in gallery  ‘Paintings by Josephine James’ ) and I have worked as artists showing our work at various galleries around the country since 1985.
