It’s a busy week in the studio, as I’m finishing up some oil paintings and framing some works on paper for the 3 Harbours Arts Festival.
As I was cataloging my new landscapes, I realized that a fair number of them were inspired by the Isle of Skye, a beautiful island off the west coast of Scotland. There’s one of Talisker Distillery, where we did a delightful whisky tasting one afternoon. There’s one of the bay where we went sea kayaking for the first time (we were lucky to get a mirror-flat sea for that). And there are several of coastline or views across bays. Looking at them all together is making me long to go back.
I’m pretty happy with the work I’ve got for 3 Harbours, which will be my first time exhibiting at an arts festival. If you’re near Edinburgh between 30 May and 7 June, please stop by and say hello! My work will be in the Chalmers Memorial Church Hall in Port Seton. I’ll be exhibiting paintings and drawings of Edinburgh, Gardenstown, Isle of Skye, and some of my Tokyo work.
I also realized I haven’t sent out an email newsletter in many months, so I’m going to pull one together soon. If you’d like to receive it, please sign up for my mailing list. And if you’re already on it, thank you so much!
