To Aviemore










I drove up to Aviemore yesterday to spend a couple of days with my son, Ralph. It was a pretty horrible day, weatherwise, but as I got closer to the Highlands, it started to clear.... and then started snowing!! I find that in Scotland, the weather seems to change a lot in one day. At the moment... this being February, we have been waking up to a miserable grey wet day, with lots of mist on hills! Then as the day wears on it clears and really lovely dramatic skies develop. Anyway, by the time I got to my hotel, it was pretty gloomy again. My hotel The Rowan Tree Hotel is very nice and would make a great location for a workshop! You just have to walk out the door and there is Loch Alvie.
Today however, it's glorious and here are some photos.

The pastel on top of this batch of great photos is captivating in every way. Your paintings and photos should qualify you as a cultural ambassador to Scotland.

Maybe I should write a book!
