Artist's Description

This was the fantastic view I had at breakfast, staying at a guest house on the West coast of Harris in the Outer Hebrides. Voted one of the best beaches in the world, this is one of a series of my oil paintings of the area. The cloud draped over the mountains hugging the contours soon dissipated to leave an unusually hot sunny day in this paradise.

A few years back this place inspired me to write a poem…

I gaze into her eyes and see a far off place,
where the ocean blue turns turquoise on the shore.
A river snakes to meet the tide,
swirling earthly hues across the waves.
A white shell sand lifts effortless on the breeze,
drifting over dune to rest – on machair.
There are daisies, buttercups, vetch and clover,
but the orchids are the star.
Standing proud, yet little seen,
with petals laced in purple, white or wine.
A white stone wall, low roof of thatch -
a cottage nestles by the hill.
I step inside, to glowing hearth
and lovers warm embrace.

Painted with oil on board it measures 30 inches wide by 20 inches high.
