Auchinleck House, the Scottish home of James Boswell.
He and Dr Johnson based themselves here when they set off on
their great Hebridean adventure.
At that time the house was owned by Boswell's father.

GSA Sculpture project


























Students in Glasgow School of Art's Sculpture
department were given access to Pollok House
and came up with work connected to the
house and it's history. My favourite two are
the gloves by Honey Jones Hughes and the books
which are spread throughout the house and garden
by Kate O'Shea.

Two of my paintings in the window of the Red Rag Gallery in
Bath. This is preparation for a two person show there in the
autumn of 2017. I'll have a few paintings there most of the time
in the eighteen month run up to the show.






































Lots of drainage problems in the fields locally
after all that rain. They did manage to drain this
area after unblocking old pipes.

Alec Galloway exhibition.





















If you happen to be in Greenock in the next couple of days
then go to Quigley Architects in George Square where Alec
Galloway is having an exhibition of paintings and stained glass.
These stained glass panels are just fabulous.

There's something very beautiful about the dying and drying of
wild flowers as they create their seeds and fulfill this years life

This fabulous old house has been renovated and
divided into nine apartments after years of neglect.
There is so much history here. The current mid
nineteenth century building incorporates bits of the
1600 house and a much earlier dwelling. It was
the home of the Dunlop family.
Robert Burns was a regular visitor as he was friendly
with the family.

Post Halloween




















The morning after the night before. This wolf glove lies
lonely and abandoned. There was one young Trick or Treat
lad who came to the door dressed as a wolf so I reckon it's his.

Halloween




















Spooky goings on in the village

Interesting camouflage on this moth. On tree bark you'd have a
hard time seeing it.
