It’s getting close now to my trip to Assynt.  I’ve been checking maps and working out routes and although it’s still a few weeks away I’m starting to get excited.  This little painting is based on a view we had the last time we were there.  On the occasion we were on the coast looking towards the wonderful hills.  It really is quite a skyline, the shapely hills rising abruptly from the wild loch strewn landscape.  Hopefully we’ll have some more of the blue sky we had that day …but less wind.   I know, I’m not asking for much am I, but heck, I can dream can’t I?
