Inspiration

I travel around the north of Scotland for my inspiration. I particularly like the bleak bareness of the Flow Country. This is the last great wilderness, bogs have lain here for thousands of years, and remnants of old civilisations such as brochs and standing stones remind me that as Lewis Grassic Gibbon wrote \'Nothing endures but the land\'.
I was asked to make a commission; a large apinting of poppies 'Alison's Poppies' and I enjoyed painting the flowere so much that I have done several paintings of poppies and some of roses.
