Well, this has been such an enjoyable project – mostly the daily discipline of painting, and the feedback that follows, thank you!

Also it’s been enjoyable for the chance to explore subjects I care about – landscape, ecology, social justice, history and the arts. The Isle of Eigg has been a perfect focus for that – a wonderful example of a way of living that’s collaborative, innovative, cultural and above all respectful of our planet.

I’ll be continuing the Eigg project and exhibiting new works as part of two shows this summer:

Exhibitions

WEST. The West Coast and Beyond at Gallery Ten (Sat 21st June Private View. Show ends 26th July )

Map/address on this link – Gallery Ten

Rose Strang; Eigg Island Solo Exhibition, Whitespace Gallery   (Friday 18th July Private View. Show ends Thursday 23rd July)

I’ll send an emailed flyer invite to everyone whose email I have, also it will be on Facebook and Twitter

    Ahhh, what a lovely journey..I loved my breakfast painting each morning at 6 am. I loved the words, and particularly enjoyed reading yr perceptions of Joseph B and his dandelion in the rock crevice.
    Thank you Rose. My purchase ( no 20) arrived safely and sits where I can see it when I wake. No 48 is my desktop image …I love the scattered light in the waves( here facing east, if you walk by the surf at dawn, the first low sun light beams through the water looking like translucent deep green glass..thank you Rose

      Hi Linda, thank you so much! There’s nothing lovelier than knowing a painting is being enjoyed. I’ve enjoyed the poetry in your descriptions too. I really would love to visit Australia, not least to visit a couple of great former flatmates who lived in Scotland for a while, but also I know I’d find the landscape fascinating, what a complete contrast to Scotland, though sun sparkles on the sea everywhere, and I’d like to see those whales you mentioned too!
      If I do visit I’ll be sure to let you know

      Very best wishes and thank you Linda!
