|'Still rock and roll' - acrylic on box canvas 5x5|
Available to purchase from Caithness Horizons
This is the landscape I put into the Caithness Horizons Christmas Exhibition in place of the one that sold just before the exhibition started. The location is a very well known and easily recognisable one if you're familiar with the far north coast of Scotland. It's Duncansby Stacks part of Duncansby Head which is the true farthest northerly point of the UK and not John O'Groats which somehow has that reputation (perhaps John O'Groats is easier to get to by bicycle?)
I pretty much made this painting up based on some photos S had taken when we first visited Duncansby Stacks in March 2012 (little knowing at the time that less than a year later we'd have moved here lock, stock and westies!) I just made my Duncansby a little more colourful and added the northern lights because isn't that the very wonder of artistic licence!
In other news this week, I'm excited to report that I'm now a member of Shop Scotland, a wonderful directory of artists and crafters located all around Scotland. I've added their button to my blog so please feel free to have a browse around - there are some fabulous delights to discover from designers, local artisan foods, artists, crafters and handmade beauty products. If you're from Scotland and want to shop locally then it's a great place to discover something new and original and if you're from anywhere else and want to discover something new and original which just happens to be produced/created in Scotland then it's also well worth a visit!
