Summer Days

This may be familiar to some of you, and I did paint something like this a while back just much larger. I liked it so much, I wanted to see if I could do it again… Summer Days is available in all my shops, Etsy, Artfinder and ArtGallery.

Glasgow Society of Women Artists

GSWA

I’m delighted to announce that I have been accepted to join the Glasgow Society of Women Artists. They have been on the go for over 100 years, and now I’m a part of them; I’m rather pleased.

My first exhibition starts with them starts with a Private View on Friday (more details to follow, apart from the above), and if you want to find out more about the GSWA, just click here.

Misty Morning Hills

tracy-butler-misty-morning-hills

I love experimenting with watercolour and gauche, never really knowing what’s going to happen as I let it dry. In this painting, I used cellophane on top of wet paint, letting it dry into all sorts of shapes, and dictating the shape of the landscape.

Misty Morning Hills is for sale in my shops, Etsy, Artfinder and Art Gallery.

Cat

A studio is not a studio unless a cat has claimed a shelf as its own.

I had done a load of knitting, thinking I could maybe sell some of it and stored my handy work neatly. I then made the mistake of blinking and found my knitting miraculously turned into a cat bed and unsalable. Now I’m out of sorts if he’s not sleeping there. His name is Splat by the way so named by my husband I must add.

Black Rock Cottage, Glencoe

The weather in Scotland has been spectacular this summer and I have spent most of it out and about. Glencoe is only 1 1/2 hours away from me, and heading up into these mountains on a sunny day is the most heart warming activity I can think of in this weather. The surrounding mountains exude such a strong sense of history and at the same time remind you that nature is the one in control (the weather can change at the snap of a finger). It is such a privilege to have Glencoe so nearby.

For sale on Etsy and Artfinder.
