I have been doing some loose landscape paintings recently.

  1. Gorgeous! Photos and paintings!

  2. Love your painting! and I think that spot is just perfect.

  3. Just been watching you on BBC 4, what a place to live.

  4. The puffins remind me of Star Wars the Last Jedi! You've got an awesome place.

  5. Blach eye looks epic. He kinda looks badass!

  6. You're very talented and you seem calm about everything! Please keep painting. It's relaxing just to see your photos.

  7. Je viens de regarder un reportage sur votre vie à Fair Isle. J'ai adoré ! Je l'ai regardé 3 fois!!! Et je crois que je le regarderai encore. Très envie de préparer un sac et de vous rejoindre. Mais ma vie en France m'en empêche... C'est trop beau. En attendant une autre vie je vais vous suivre sur votre blog. Je vous souhaite une belle et merveilleuse vie dans cet endroit magique.

  8. I like how you show some of your paintings and the landscape and birds that inspired them. The photo of the puffin with fish for its babies is so crisp and clear.
