Skye is one of my favourite Scottish islands – there is a magic to the landscape no matter what time of the year. Every time I go there I come away wanting to paint. I was there this year; so here is the resulting wee painting.
There is something magical about these wee cottages at the head of Loch Maree. No matter how many times I pass them, I always have to stop and look. Their surrounding landscape is so wild and with the trees planted around them, these wee houses seem like an oasis of calm.
This is an odd painting. I’ve exhibited it all over the place, had so much interest in it, but it has never sold. However….
I sell prints and greetings cards of it over and over and over again through my shop on Etsy and galleries. I have no idea why. I thought it might be the size of the original- 61 x 51 cm (24 x 20″) – but I sell prints of it at that size.
