Southerness 'Starry Night'.

Still in progress, but I've been working on painting the view at night near Southerness lighthouse and across the Solway to Cumbria in the style of Van Gogh's Starry Night series. I started with a notion of staying with Van Gogh's style but it went somewhere else ! The Milky Way rising from the horizon to the left of the lighthouse became the emanations from a volcano, and then became a dragon with its wings eventually connecting the stars in the sky with the rest of our galaxy. With apologies to the landscape purists ....

Birds on the wire.

I so loved these crows dancing like notes on a music sheet, that I was inspired to do my stuff. This print is approximately 20" x 40".

Scottish Pow

Two Scottish Pows ! Beyond Glasgow's Scottish Power building and distant Dumgoyne in the Campies, the Southern Highlands are white topped under a mantle of fresh snow. Winter is coming :-)

Spring flowers

When I was at the Annan Harbour Festival, a lovely couple were admiring my Spring Flowers picture and asked whether it'd be possible to have it four times larger than the 16"x20" print I had on display there. Having contacted a fine art printer to ask how much it would cost to produce a 32"x40" giclee onto 100% cotton canvas using pigment inks, I was shocked at the cost and so decided that it was time to invest in a bigger printer so as I could do it myself. Anyway, I don't often get to see where my prints end up, but I delivered and hung this one today for an absolutely delighted customer :-)
