It’s a beautiful day for a wee sail “Doon the Watter”. P.S. Waverley will be sailing the River Clyde until 30th August and can be boarded not far from us at Custom House Quay, Greenock or further down the coast at Largs Pier.

She is a sight to behold, and passes our window often during her Summer on the Clyde. A few years ago, I took this video while on board of the engine room and her steam engine made by Rankin & Blackmore, Engineers, Eagle Foundry, in Greenock.

So, go for a sail. Enjoy a great day out with fantastic scenery in the company of this majestic Lady.

Back From The Edge by Paul MacPhail | Gift Mugs

Creativeness on Portobello beach, Edinburgh. The work of photo-sculpture-artist Paul MacPhail.

See Scottish life – with a very different perspective. Paul’s images take you to futuristic landscapes, they make you look at the familiar from a different point of view, but most of all, his images captivate and draw you into the scene.

I am delighted to share these with you today, and I hope you like them too. Wonderful gift mugs from artist Ingrid Nilsson.

Ingrid is based in Edinburgh, she grew up in London, but her childhood travels to Scotland paved the way for her move there in the mid nineties.

She has been exhibiting locally, and in England for the last 15 years.

In 2011 Ingrid and partner Stuart opened Gallery-Cafe ‘Bon Papillon’ in the heart of Edinburgh’s ‘art quarter’. From here Ingrid paints and Stuart runs his framing workshop.

I can highly recommend the coffee and scones !

Spirited Shape and Form

Diana Hand has always loved horses – as a horse owner and rider, Diana finds drawing horses a very natural form of expression and enjoys sharing the movement, spirit, study and form of these beautiful creatures in her work. She was brought up in London and trained at the Ruskin School of Drawing in Oxford and later at Glasgow School of Art, graduating in 2001 with an Honours Degree in Painting.

Her work includes textiles, printmaking, sculpture and more recently her first love – drawing on paper – particularly horses.
