When York artist Richard Barnes returned to his studio after spending Christmas 2015 in Australia, he found it under 3 feet of water after the Boxing Day floods.  So he de-camped to Staithes and spent the rest of the winter painting here while his York studio dried out.  The result is this series of beautiful paintings capturing the village in winter at dusk, with the lights coming on in the cottages and reflected in the water.  Come and see the paintings in the gallery now!
