Wayne Williams certainly has the Scottish weather sussed.
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 !

Bob studied at Glasgow School of Art and graduated in 1959. After completing National Service in RAF in Singapore, he qualified as a teacher of art in Glasgow.
Throughout his teaching life he has always painted, being of the belief that an art teacher should also be a practising artist. Now retired from the post of Principal Teacher of Art at Craigmount High School in Edinburgh, he can devote more time and energy to painting.
Together with his wife Val (a stained glass artist and teacher) they have renovated various properties in Edinburgh, Arran and the Borders. They have three grown up daughters also in the art world. Bob paints mostly in acrylics and depicts the many different moods of the Scottish landscape.
Bob Lees has had solo exhibitions in Edinburgh and Arran, and exhibited in other galleries (one of his paintings was presented to the late Princess Diana on an official visit to Arran). His work hangs in various private collections in the UK, Europe, Russia and the United States. Bob and Val live in Edinburgh but spend much of their time in their converted church in Corrie on the Isle of Arran.
I am rather partial to the West Coast of Scotland, and this print by Rob Hain.
Can you see the squinty bridge, Science Centre, Glenlee and the Museum of Transport ?
