I finished this painting about a month ago and yesterday my partner Anita put it into a frame.  It’s always good seeing something finally framed and up on the wall and I’m quite pleased with this piece.

I’ve been asked so many times over the years whether I’d painted the view across the water to Arran, but in the past had always been interested in view points that were up in the hills.  I finally gave in to demand and this is what I came up with.  It’s the kind of view I get when I look towards the Isle of Arran from the mouth of the River Irvine near to my studio ….but looking through my monocular.

As I say, the painting is now up on my studio wall and can be viewed any time I’m working there.  As it’s the 2014 Open Studio Ayrshire event this weekend (Sat / Sun 26 / 27th April) why not call in to see it as part of your studio trail this weekend?  There are 47 venues open throughout Ayrshire ….more details: www.openstudiosayrshire.com
