Head over to our new blog at Greetings from Robert Kelsey to read more about Roberts beautiful cards.
Wayne Williams certainly has the Scottish weather sussed.
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 !

Douglas Roulston, originally from Glasgow, studied at Duncan of Jordanstone, University of Dundee and achieved a Bachelor of Fine Art. He then went onto complete a Master of Fine Art.
He has taken the myths and legends of the Scottish Highlands and portrayed them with oil on canvas and expressive charcoal drawings. His passion for landscape has derived from his enthusiasm and love for outdoor sports such as skiing, mountain biking and hill walking.
In undertaking these sports he has had the time to appreciate the true beauty and atmosphere of the Highlands. This beauty inspired him to study 19th century Romantic artists who first started to capture the picturesque scenery of places such as Glencoe and Loch Katrine.
He has painted from his imagination and tried to capture the intensity of the Highlands and the power that it has over humanity. This is highlighted by over exaggerating rock faces and creating piercing light rays through breaking clouds, reflection and the tranquility of distant springs and lochs. Mankind or any human creations rarely feature in his work.
It is the awe of nature, and the spirit of the sublime of nature that is explored throughout his work.
