Curious indeed is the stuff that makes humans tick. A lovely summer’s eve a week past the solstice in Coeur d’Alene, Idaho: Most of a week has been spent reconnecting with paint & canvas after a long dry spell, & writing for the black hole of descriptive sentences called Marketing Tools. I am so fortunate in all that I consider: great friends & family, pleasant surroundings, excellent health, absorbing interests, safe & healthy food. What more could one ask? That’s EASY……to return to Scotland! Understanding of this draw of a distant land & culture has become a non-issue – it’s of no matter why, just when!
My focus on painting Scottish subject matter exclusively began during a 2-month trip to explore and collect material for paintings in 2003. My passion for the subject matter and for painting has only deepened since. It is my sincere hope to encourage others in appreciation & learning about Scottish culture through my paintings and music.
