Art - Autumn 2016 Scotland.

Transition to winter at Kellie Garden. 

The borders are in decline and yet still colourful. 

And green. So very green. 

Along the road nearby, the sunflower field at Ardross farm begins to rest. 

Sweet faces. 

Still life. 

 Move toward the dark materials. 

The Kingdom of Fife.

Travel - Coopershill - Co. Sligo - Ireland

Very Jane Austen. Coopershill in Co. Sligo, W. B. Yeats country. A 250 year old Georgian house with at least 20 foot ceilings, wide halls, massive mirrors.  A privilege to sleep there, eat there, watch the trees there. Glorious. 

Tell me how you like this. 

I know. Carried away with the photos. What a place. Thank you Coopershill family. 8 generations.
