Back in the Saddle.....Sort Of......Frogs at Hastings!

    I'll never understand how a person can live most of their life in one place, and find they're drawn, pulled and pushed towards another thousands of miles away......yup, it's reality for me, and has been for years.....I'm sitting in my studio in Coeur d'Alene, going through the motions of a frenetic daily routine, but countless times a day the brain strays to Scottish shores and subjects.....c-r-a-z-y.  The uplifting experience of Perthshire Amber, Dougie and Jenny Maclean's wonderful celebration of Dougie's music and so much more has definitely left it's mark....may I never recover!!!  Working on learning some of Dougie's haunting fiddle tunes will definitely be a part of this winter's regular activity.

    The Toadage! series of bullfrog posters is up on display in the Coeur 'd Alene Hastings coffee shop,  along with a selection of my mum's paintings.  Posters are available for purchase either flat on cardboard or rolled in a tube for $15 each.  An extensive selection of cards and mini-giclee's of my Scottish paintings can also be found in the card section next the coffee shop.  My sincere thanks to Simone and Kathryn for giving them a try!
