I always enjoy hearing about life in the Thousand Islands, Bruce, so I'm looking forward to what you have to offer for 2015.

I hope you and Deb have a good holiday with the family.

All the best,

A beautiful painting, Keith; your work is always inspiring. Thank you for your kind wishes and the same to you.
We had a hard frost on Christmas day which made the day feel festive yet no snow here as yet. We went to Aviemore yesterday for Richard hubby's birthday and saw some snow on the high mountains yet there was none in Aviemore or indeed loch morlich. Some fabulous skies for painting. Lovely watercolour painting very festive!

Hi Caroline, there's no snow here either at the moment, but we had the hard frost; it's been difficult to get out at times because of the icy conditions.

Happy New Year.

MeyGen Tidal Energy Project

The sea between the island of Stroma and the Mainland has very strong tidal currents, where the waters of the Atlantic Ocean and the North Sea meet. This has made it an ideal site for the first commercial tidal power generation project in Scotland, and currently the largest in the World. The turbines are in the form of large propellers, similar to wind turbines. It's good to see a World-leading project based here in Scotland, and the Country is well on the way to having most of its energy from renewable sources.

I am concerned about the effect on marine life, particularly the whales and dolphins which are often seen in these waters, but I hope the environmental impact is being monitored and taken into account.

The ship in the painting was in the process of servicing one of the turbines.

Moine House

"Moine House, Tongue" Watercolour on Fabriano Artistico 300gsm Rough paper 25 x 36 cm
West of Tongue, in Sutherland, there is a large peat bog called The Moine, which stretches all the way over to the next valley. At more-or-less the highest point there is a ruined building, called Moine House, which I have always found very striking. It is a wild and lonely spot and it has a background of dramatic mountains. I assumed that it was an old drovers' inn, but a plaque* on the wall tells the story of how it was erected as a refuge for travellers.

Frozen Landscape

Frozen Landscape, watercolour, 16 x 26 cm

I often think that the Flow Country can look like an Arctic landscape at times. Especially in freezing temperatures, this kind of scene reminds me of images I have seen of places like Svalbard.
