I've recently returned from a trip to Svalbard, getting to within 480 miles of the North Pole. I've never before felt moved to paint landscapes I've visited on holiday, but the arctic ice truly got under my skin and I've been busy painting the stark beauty of the realm of the polar bear. It was a privilege to be there.

2022 was a very quiet year on the blogging front - sorry!
Despite this, I worked on a series of paintings inspired by the poem Sea Fever by John Masefield, in memory of my friend's father who had recently passed away. Many of these are now available at Resipole Studios (Ardnamurchan) and The Atelier Gallery (Edinburgh).

I am currently exhibiting in two exhibitions as well as in my usual galleries. The exhibitions are The Scottish Show at Iona House Gallery in Woodstock (until 21st November) and the Impressions of Dumfries and Galloway at McGill Duncan Gallery in Castle Douglas, open throughout the winter.
Below is "Criffel from Bothel, Mid Summer". I cycled past the field as they were baling at the end of July, and felt compelled to capture the bright colours of the view over the fields to the Solway and beyond to Dumfries and Galloway.
