Today’s paintings of the Island of Harris, for the upcoming exhibition on the 14th – 20th July at Whitespace Gallery, Edinburgh.

If any sell before exhibition they’ll have a red ‘sale’ dot next to them, then they’ll be posted to you the day after the exhibition ends (July 21st). You are welcome to email me at rose.strang@gmail.com if you have any questions.

Below are all paintings so far (I’ll be painting larger ones at 9 x9 inches soon, and perhaps a few at 15×15 inches).
