There's A Place for Us by Peter Lusby Taylor


Small (22.1" x 16.4")

Available to buy on…

I don’t know why but I keep humming Bernstein’s tune from West Side Story so this gets that title..
This though is a so called But and ben with a little extension overlooking Badcall Bay in Sutherland. ( meaning two roomed cottage in Scots) We spent a week there about twenty years ago with someone who was very ill. Its an incomparable view from there, very bleak in winter but heaven in spring and late summer when the midgies have gone. The row of former cottages in middle distance are now used for the salmon company and this is a very good place to fish farm as the bay is ringed with islands.

Small acrylic sketch on canvas.
