The latest from me and inspired by a photo I had taken of this lighthouse a few years ago. If you have ever headed across to the Isle of Arran on the ferry from Ardrossan then you might recognise this view.

Above 'Captain' - inspired by our cycling adventure to Nova Scotia last year
This year, for the first time, I will be taking part in Spring Fling - 'Scotland's Premier Art and Craft Open Studios Event' in Dumfries and Galloway from 28th-30th May. My studio will be temporarily set up at the National Trust for Scotland property Threave House and Gardens, on the outskirts of Castle Douglas.
Visitors to my Spring Fling Studio can expect to see a selection of my latest work, with some new pieces that haven't been shown before! Thumb through some of my sketchbooks, where most of my inspiration starts and enter a competition to win one of my mounted pieces.
Spring Fling is such a brilliant event and I'm very excited to be apart of it this year.

I'm really enjoying drawing buildings at the moment and so after a walk at, National Trust for Scotland property, Threave on Sunday afternoon I couldn't resist the urge to draw this one.
It was freezing and was getting dark so it was speedy quick sketching, but I managed to record enough detail to work up my final piece.

I recently enjoyed a lovely walk with friends on a local coastal path we've walked several times before. The views across the Solway to the Lake District are wonderful from this clifftop path. With binoculars at the ready we spotted lots of oystercatchers, gulls, cormorants and a seal!
A lovely walk with lovely people on a calm October weekend - you can't ask for more than that.
