Next trip in the planning.

I've done another small painting with my inktense sticks and pencils across the loch from Dunvegan to McLeods tables.

About my Blog

Margaret Shaw My blog summarises my life as an artist. It's a bit like a diary: New artworks completed. Artworks in Progress. Photos I've taken. Things that inspire me. Where I'm exhibiting. Things I've learnt. And anything else that I think blogworthy.
