'From Beinn a' Chliabhain, Isle of Arran'

‘From Beinn a’ Chliabhain, Isle of Arran’, Acrylic & Pastel, 2009, 30 x 30 cm

Although I’ve shown this small painting in this section before, I thought I use it again this week as it is linked to the subject of this week’s blog.  Beinn a’ Chliabhain is the rugged hill rising on your left as you walk up Glen Rosa.  Yesterday we only saw it for a short time before it was gradually wrapped in cloud and rain.  On the day though that this painting was based on, instead of the cloud coming down, it was breaking and clearing.  We sat just below its summit for a good while just watching the slowly changing scene of mist and mountain ….the mountain in question being Beinn Nuis.   The Arran hills really are special …if you’re a Munro bagger and don’t do things that are under the magic 914m then you’re really missing out…..why not make it your New Years resolution …to go and walk in the Arran hills during 2012!
