Went to the new Wholefoods store in Giffnock. Being something
of a chocoholic I always check out the chocolate bars. This one
I'd never tried before and it's fabulous. Made in Madagascar.
It's got such a complex taste..neither bitter nor sweet.

Someone was asking if I had any paintings of Iceland.
Found three including this wee sketch of lake Myvatn.
Huge midges round there. We'd read about them but
nothing prepares you for the actual thing.
Beautiful place despite midge attack.

Ormidale House, Argyll

During the last week of March next year I shall be heading a
five day art course at Ormidale House in Argyll. Yesterday I
visited Ormidale and think it's a fabulous place.
Visiting chef Stuart Campbell made us a scrummy lunch.
Stuart will be cooking for the art course and I can't wait!
Details of this course will appear before Christmas.
