At the moment I am currently exhibiting with my fellow artists and friends in the Cromarty Group Exhibition at the Stables where my studio is located here in Cromarty.We are all artists from in and around Cromarty and get together for a week a year to exhibit out work.I am the 'newbie' amongst the group ,as I have only been a part of it for 4 years, but it has been going on since 1976 and I feel honoured to be a part of it.What an great turnout we had at the preview and a fun evening it was too! The Stables is such an amazing venue and really showed all the different styles of work beautifully.If you are in the area - it goes all week until Sunday the 17th, 4pm.Check out our Facebook page.Here are a couple of the artists you will see: The Hat, Pamela Tait Pink Oilskins, Simon Gunn
We all take things for granted and we can't see what is right in front of us.My studio is situated in the Highlands of Scotland overlooking the seaside village of Cromarty.I share this space, known as the Stables Studios, with 4 other artists in a renovated 18th century stable block with wooden pillars and vaulted ceilings.When a friend dropped by the other day she mentioned that this would such a beautiful place to work. That's when I took a step back and there it is, my studio…my beautiful studio!We all get in our daily ruts and we need to remind ourselves of the beauty that surrounds us. Here I am in a building with an amazing atmosphere and with the landscape outside my door inspiring the work I do.There will be days I just don't see it but today I do and I appreciate it.Take a moment and look around today - you might be surprised at what you see!
