Scottish Isles & England

In 1988 when I began traveling to England and Scotland, I accompanied Jean and Jasper Rose in Wiltshire on their plein air painting days, which included visits to Avebury, and nearby Silbury Hill, believed by some to be central to legends of the Great Goddess. While visiting Edinburgh, I saw a model of Scara Brae, contemporary of the Pyramids, that led me the following year to the Orkney Islands, which became in subsequent trips, along with the Hebrides, a major motif in my work, with its amazing light, skies, sculptured hills and endless waterways. The graphite and color pencil sketches I did on these trips became the basis for watercolors, prints, egg temperas and oil paintings done later in my studio.
