Firstly I thought you may like a peep at my new display at Skyeworks Gallery in Portree.
I love the way it looks and you may recognise some of my recent pieces. Skyeworks is a beautiful Gallery with a great Artisan bakery downstairs, if you are visiting Skye try their lunchbreads and cakes....delicious!
The weather continues to be gloomy, but in amongst the clouds and there are windows of sunshine, and when this happens I am out with my camera!
The hillsides seem to be covered in foxgloves this year... far more than normal,
My new piece is inspired by their cheerful exuberance!

I had a trip to the most westerly edge of Skye last week...
Yes this is August...
The lighthouse is at Neist point on the Duirinish coast is set in wild and dramatic setting. The wind fiercely whistles in from the Atlantic. This is one hardy foxglove!
The lighthouse built in 1909 is no longer manned and can only be reached by walking along a long steep path which winds ribbon-like over the exposed finger like peninsular. It is said the light can be seen over 20 miles away.
The path passes An t-Aigeach or as it is known’ the Stallions head’. A huge craggy cliff which has a sheer drop of 230 ft.
Not the weather for staying out for long....
