  'Autumn Colours, Craigellachie Bridge' (oil on board, 11x14 inches)   I painted this Thomas Telford designed bridge in Craigellachie (Speyside) as a wedding gift for some good friends.  This is the location where the groom popped the question and the Autumn colours reflected the fact that they tied the knot in October.  I am delighted to report that they really love it!

  'Monymusk House, by the River Don' (oil on canvas board, 8x10 inches)   This painting was the product of my first ever  plein air  painting expedition, close to where I live and is a scene I think I will find myself coming back to time and time again because it is so beautiful.  This was a gift for my sister's recent special birthday.

  'Fleeting Sunlight by Bennachie' (oil on panel, 9x12 inches)   I painted this picture  alla prima  from a photo reference.  It shows the majestic hill 'Bennachie', which dominates the Aberdeenshire countryside near Inverurie where I grew up.  I have kept this painting in my private collection given that it is a view I love.

  'Portrait of Mum' (oil on panel 14x11 inches)   I painted this picture one evening whilst on an extended family holiday in the South of France for my Mum's birthday.  Beautiful though she is, she wasn't the best model as she chatted, laughed and moved around far too much!!
