Thought I would do a shout out for my very hard working neighbour Laura who produces beautiful jewellery and cards from her home and you can buy her work from her etsy page and keep an eye on her page as it's getting a revamp very soon. Laura has introduced me to lots of lovely things and inspired me to start this a huge thank you to her XXX

Paintings of Forfar, Scotland

Forfor Loch, Acrylic on canvas panel framed in black stained frame with a gold slip.

The Little Causeway, Forfar, Pen and Ink with watercolour. Framed with single deep mount and oak stained frame.

Thought I would add a couple of paintings I did recently of Forfar, Scotland for a local exhibition in Kirriemuir, Scotland. I didn't sell either of them unfortunately so they both are going to be on my Etsy page very soon. I don't have pictures of them with their frames yet so I have to wait for my Mother-in-Law to take them for me as the paintings are still up in Forfar!
I'm also doing some paintings of Loch Lomond at the moment for the gallery I work in I don't have any work there yet so very excited about getting some work shown there. You can have a look at the website here
