This painting was part of an art exchange with Bideford's American twin town Manteo, NC. Bideford is a North Devon port town that once was one of the busiest in the country. It saw the launch of the first English attempt to found a colony in the Americas, which failed due to trouble with the Spanish Armada around the same time. Bideford is still a charming historic town, and is twinned with Manteo because of this historic link.
