Well I've finally done it! Plucked up the courage to take heed of the suggestions of several exhibition and art shed visitors this year and compiled a calendar. I selected some of the pastels I've drawn on Skye over the seasons and had a limited number printed as a 2017 calendar. When I say limited number, it truly is. Positively tiny in fact, but it's a start and it'll be good to see how popular they are. To order you can click on the image above or here (I've introduced free delivery across the site too. No extra charges or price hikes, just thought it'd make things simpler).
It's lovely to see my drawings in the same vicinity. Usually they're spaced out along walls or in different buildings around the country as they wend their way around exhibitions. I'm working on some drawings of a much larger nature at the moment and it's good to have a chance to reflect on the work that's amassed over 2016. The shorter days at the start of winter bring on a ponderous quality sometimes and it's good to cast the mind over the summer Hebridean days where the darkness was but a fleeting moment and catching the sunrise meant a four o'clock start...
