"The artist...is also a born adventurer. His explorations, unlike those of a tourist, are rewarded by the discovery of beauty spots unmentioned in the guide books, and with tireless curiosity and an exceptional proneness to wonderment, he will come upon objects of remarkable interest overlooked or even shunned by more disciplined observers."

The first print completed this year, a smallish linocut based on an old wtercolour sketch. The challenge with this one being to capture the atmosphere of a rainy day in the Scottish Borders. Newly posted on my Folksy shop it can be purchased by following the link on the right or by clicking here
