Thanks for sharing. We visited his studio and really enjoyed talking with him. We didn’t purchase anything at that time and it has been hard to see what was available given his prior limited website. I've got a spot that need some new artwork!

Yes. We bought a print when we were there in Dec. It is a special reminder of the "color lesson" he shared with us!

Thank you so much for the website you listed. The story of his life is amazing. So many facts about him I never knew. One of our most prized images is the one painted by Sir Roland. I hope many others will read his story on his website.

We visited Roland's studio when it was in his typical creole house, just north of Quartier-d'Orleans, a long time ago. The house was set back from the road with a nice view of the sea in the distance. His paintings were spectacular but way out of our price range back then. He had a remarkable eye for color smile

I have visited his gallery twice, purchasing a beautiful print each time. He and his wife are charming.

And...there is an on line store if you need a beautiful SXM reminder to brighten your day. Priceless, really. We miss it there so much.. It is enjoyable to read about Roland's incredible history. We visited the gallery/museum in Dec. after we saw a post from you Cincinnati_kid when you showed the surprise print for your fiancée. We can not believe that we had never been there before in all the decades we have been going to St. Maarten. So..Thank you for helping us to enlighten our lives, which is what the visit to the gallery did. In SO many ways.
