  1. Well Keith , you've chosen some really amazing pieces.. If I had to choose I honestly would not be able.
    I wish you luck with the show. I welcome and thank you for all your suggestions .. Yes, that 30 min. timer sounds really good.. I sometimes just don't know where and when to STOP!

  2. Nice work Keith, I hope you are able to sell some Pieces.

  3. Wish i could visit it, ... it would be awesome to see your work in real life I'll guess.

    Good luck!

  4. They are all beautiful, but I love Maiden Pap. I really hope the show goes well, Keith; I will be thinking of you. My great-great-grandfather, James MacGregor, came from either Latheron or Keith (there is some confusion regarding his birth place), so I'm almost one of the locals...

    1. Thanks Diane.

      ".......came from either Latheron or Keith......."
      That's certainly a coincidence, Latheron is just down the road from where I live.

  5. Hi there Keith!..... Three winners! I like the variation of subject matter and perspectives that you have selected.

    Good luck with sales! Fingers crossed for you!

    Good Painting!
    Warmest regards,

    1. Hi Bruce, glad you like the selection, I hope there are some potential buyers who agree with you.

      All the best,

  6. Fabulous paintings, every one ... but I particularly like the old mill. Those luscious dark tones give it real depth. I hope the exhibition went well for you Keith and that all of these are now hanging on someone else's wall.

  7. Thanks John, I'll find out how many have sold tomorrow. One has certainly gone.

North Coast 500

In 2015 the North Highland Initiative started a project to boost tourism in the northern counties of Scotland. The idea was to publicise a 500 mile route through Inverness-shire, Ross & Cromarty, Sutherland and my home county of Caithness, and promote it as a superb road trip. I don't know how successful they expected it to be, but it has quickly become very popular and has been called one of the top five coastal routes in the World. In fact its popularity is becoming a problem for the local residents: some of the roads are single-track, with bays at intervals to allow two vehicles to pass each other, but there is an etiquette for their use that strangers are not always aware of. The result is that local people going about their business find themselves held up by slow-moving tourist vehicles, so if you use the route please pull over and allow other vehicles to pass. The amount of traffic will probably also cause damage to the roads, which were not intended for heavy use. Desp…

Moorland Fire

Moorland Fire Watercolour 25 x 36 cm
There is a definite feeling of approaching autumn now, with some cooler days and more unsettled weather. It hardly seems any time at all since the spring, when there was a long spell of dry weather and the moors were tinder-dry. There were a number of serious fires at the time and several nature reserves were badly damaged. I think they were mostly caused by accident or carelessness this time, but unfortunately there are people who seem to get satisfaction from starting fires deliberately.

The fire in this painting is of a different kind. Every year between, autumn and spring, shooting estates burn off small patches of moorland to leave a patchwork of heather. This encourages the breeding of grouse, with the old growth providing cover and the new shoots providing food. The operation has to be done very carefully, because fires can easily get out of control, and once the underlying peat starts to burn it can burn for days and is very difficult to p…
