My Lovelies ... you have brought your magical selves to have a peek and see what's going on today. Welcome.
In the late 1980's I spent a winter on the west coast of Scotland. Beautiful towns along that coast - from Dundee, Carnoustie, Arbroath up to Aberdeen. At some point I was privileged to spend time at Loch Tay and surrounding areas. A stunning estate, overlooking the lake, where we stayed at the old dowager house, enjoying the opulence and comfort of the beautiful surroundings. If you have read some of my other blog posts you will know I also lived in London when I was young and foolish Glasgow was my home for awhile and so I pretty much saw and fell in love with Scotland and her people. Sometimes, even now, I get homesick for the UK ... it was a huge part of my life.
I have always found bridges fascinating, and the old curved stone bridges of the UK ... well I fell in love. This particular painting is a wintery scene from the Loch Tay area, full of mist and mystery, painted in the soft colours I used to love so much. Mexico changed all that.
A copy of the painting I am showing you today has become a journal page. I am linking to Art Journal Journey, and Paint Party Friday.
