|'Reflections of the West' - impasto landscape 6 x 4 inches|
So, the Society of Caithness Artists annual exhibition had its preview last night and Angela and I were running round sticking red dots on all the pieces that sold. Unfortunately the only red dots I got were of the itchy scratchy variety following a midge feeding frenzy about my person from sitting in the garden a couple of days earlier!

This is my second year to exhibit in this show and it’s the biggest art show for our local area now in its 79th year. Unfortunately I’ve been told that it does tend to be a bit of a ‘closed shop’ with the same well-known local artists selling out year after year and new folk, like me, struggling to get noticed, so to speak. Still, hope springs eternal and it’s open for 2 weeks so never say never (at least not for another 2 weeks) so I’ll keep sending positive thoughts to the Universe for a sale or two!
I submitted two large acrylic pieces – the landscape and the Highland Cow and also two gouache pieces – the seal and the close up of the horse’s eye.

I’ve been working on more miniature landscapes of the beautiful far north using the up-cycled canvasses that used to have Twisty Town paintings on them.
This one is entitled ‘Reflections of the West’ and again I used a beautiful photograph, that S took, for my reference. These miniature landscapes are all available for sale on my website.
