            We found the Isle of Raasay by accident when we couldn’t find a vacancy on the Isle of Skye, one of our favorite areas in Scotland.  The Isle of Raasay is one of the islands making up the Inner Hebrides, and is smaller than Skye. Raasay is also more quiet, less touristy, but I think just as beautiful. It ended up being a very lucky find for us.
            The view that I painted is across the Sound of Raasay looking at the east coast of Skye.
            Happy Weekend!

            When I saw the location of this house, all I could think is what an amazing view they must have every day. Whoever lives here not only has a fantastic view of the water but also magnificent hills, distant mountains, and that gorgeous sky!
            Happy Almost Weekend!

            We were so lucky to find an amazing hotel (The Torridon) in the northern highlands of Scotland with incredible views of mountains and water. I was struggling with trying to capture the beautiful mountains behind this tree but my attention kept wandering back to the sun starting to increasingly set this tree ablaze with light. I finally decided to do a quick painting of this gorgeous tree that just glowed as the sun went down.
            Happy Weekend!
