Love the Isle of Lewis

A mid April highlight was a second visit to the Isle of Lewis.

This year we toured the whole island returning to a delightful cottage within a short distance of the great Reef (Riof) Beach.

Otter watching, eagle spotting, whisky drinking and the occasional slice of salmon topped the week. The weather was ‘kind’ after initially travelling through snow storms on our way upwards to the ferry at Ullapool.

Now starting a whole new series of paintings based on the Island and some of the boats. ‘Broken Stern’ is the first (sold). So will have a new selection of work to exhibit at Art in the Pen in Skipton on 13th & 14 August.
