It was a battle concentrating in my studio today as snow showers over the Minch and Harris kept distracting me. The dance of lights/darks; silvers, whites, and greyswith patches of blue sky and metallic sea blues; shifting clouds revealing new snow on the mountains, the cold making them seem so close; winter croftlands glowing in sunshine. Not many of the showers blew across to me, most went across the view, heading south. Far more fun to watch than being beneath!
I was working on various paintings, including the big sheep canvas I was on at the end of last month. Here’s where it was at the end of today’s painting, with a detail photo at the bottom. If you’ve ideas for a title, do post a comment!

The stretch of sea between Skye and the Outer Hebrides, called the Minch, are home to the Blue Men of the Minch. You protect yourself with poetry!
ah, poetry- the woods are lovely dark and deep, but i have promises to keep, and miles to go before i sleep- gets me through at times
