Photo below was taken Saturday morning thought the hawthorn berries really lifted the scene and might try it as a painting. As you can see winter has most definately arrived :)

Tonto (Silver By Nature) on his summer break.
Tomorrow is going to be a bit exciting and nerve wracking all at the same time Tonto aka Silver By Nature is running in the Hennessy Gold Cup at Newbury would have been better if he had the heavy ground he loves but he'll give a good account of himself in the good to soft. I'll be like a hen on a hot plate until the race is run. I'm hoping you'll all keep everything crossed for Geoff, Joyce and Lucinda and the team....silver for gold :))

There is a subtle pink in the sky on the horizon of this wee snow scene which is lost in the publishing and it goes to make the painting feel a little warmer. But even looking at it now I want to pull my gloves on and wrap my scarf tighter to keep out the chill.

"The Path" will be heading to Edinburgh next Monday to take part in the Torrance Gallery's Christmas Exhibition where the hint of what is around that bend might attract it to someone.

The holly by the way is from Andra's garden, every year round about now he starts making christmas garlands from the produce of his garden. It's time consuming as he picks and makes them all himself....well with a little help from his family these past couple of years. He turned 92 last week and finally admits too slowing down......smile!

I've been a little short on posts these last couple of weeks for various reasons. Was off to Aberfeldy to deliver my paintings early for the Christmas Exhibition as a client was coming early to look at a couple of my paintings. The exhibiton opens tomorrow with a lovely selection of work, some of which can be seen online at http://www.aberfeldygallery.co.uk .
Sunday past I finally got down to Rozelle to see the Save The Children Exhibition...on the very last day of the show. Another lovely exhibition where 173 paintings had been sold from just over 400 entries at a value of £41,621 not bad in the economic climate.
Some personal issues and a touch of painters block has left me a bit drained and frustrated as I have a number of commisions on the burner (including one very big one which I can't hide from as it takes up a huge part of my studio and stares accusingly at me). I know this will pass but for now I'll take things at a slower pace for a little while, you may have noticed I've altered the goal posts for the 100 paintings for under £100. They now don't have a finish date and will be finished...when they're finished. The good news for that is you'll have longer to decide which one you want :)
Thanks for looking in and have a lovely weekend :)
