Scotland 2018

I was talking to Graham who lives in the cottage in this painting and he was asking why I like to paint the puddles (he has watched me paint puddles for a long time). Behind me is the beautiful west facing sea- and of course this is great to paint too, but there is something more interesting to me at the moment in painting the bits that people don't generally paint. And, in Scotland you have to embrace the puddles - so it's something about painting what you find, and when it rains a lot the puddles are what you get! Then, in the end, they look like rock pools and I like that also. Graham then said something nice, which was that when it is rough the puddles become sea anyway as it comes right over the top and fills the puddles.
