inspiration

back in February I took a little trip to Harris and took a few photos along the way, Patsy at Wildsherkin saw this photo and asked if she could use it as inspiration for a painting,

a few weeks ago she posted the finished pastel painting of the Clisham mountains, you can click through and read her post here,

Monday a beautiful print of the painting arrived at my house, I love it, it’s so beautiful,

whenever I go to Harris I know where on the journey this view is and always have camera at the ready as it is one of my favourite views, also when I lived on Scalpay, Harris, this was part of the view from my house, in the distance though not up close as when on the Tarbert – Stornoway road, I used to think one day I would walk the path to the mountain but never have, now I have the view in my home to see every day, thank you so much Patsy x
