PRINCESS OF THE NIGHT

My most recent artwork – for sale at Hallgreen Castle.

Princess of the Night

 She used to be an iron horse twenty years ago


Used to bring the mail to me through the ice and snow

I sat alone and watched her steaming through the night

Ninety tons of thunder riding up the sky

 

She was the Princess of the Night


We saw the writing on the wall

She was the Princess of the Night

I’d take a ride across the sky, sky, sky, sky

Inspired by lyrics from Saxon

AUCHMITHIE HAAR 20-21 August

That was a wonderful weekend, sun was shining, and people were out and about.  The atmosphere at Trafalgar house was lovely and relaxed.   Fellow Artists Liz Petrie, Jilly Henderson, Neil Paterson, Karen Elliot, Maralyn Reid-Wood were delightful company.   Thanks to everyone for your generosity.  I also came away from the weekend with a new family member who now eats and sleeps for Scotland and is a right loving fur baby!  I have named him Happy, cos he is!

Puzzles and frustrations of a blogging beginner

OK – After what seems like forever, I am still learning how to blog.  Yesterday I learned that galleries don’t seem to work very well.  The pictures looked small and uninteresting and didn’t display at all in facebook.  Just a big blank space – which did have a link to the gallery page, but it took ages to load.    Now I understand why people post one photograph at  time.  So, please be patient with me as I learn.
