You know what makes me grumpy? All the Grumpy Old Men who appeared on the BBC TV series were younger than me, that's what makes me grumpy. Mutter, mutter....

BOYNDIE BAY

As I promised yesterday, the latest painting is shown above (top). I'm very pleased with it, as I really knew I would be as soon as I saw this scene that evening in late June. Normally I don't try to make my work evocative of a single moment in time. Usually it's better just to have it stored in the memory, but I made an exception this time.

Today the clearance in the thick cloud, which has been enveloping us, made its long-awaited appearance, so I was able to capture the painting on my little digital camera (Pentax Optio 50, for anyone who's interested!). I hope you enjoy looking at it (the painting, that is!), and any comments, as always, would be very welcome!
