The untamed beauty of Isle of mull, Staffa and Ardalanish Scotland


Glorious Puffins

I never thought such nature still existed…
It is raw, foreboding, gentle, soothing, dramatic, cleansing…
Happiness is surrounding ourselves with such beauty at a moment’s notice and/or at every opportunity presenting itself to us.
The Highland cattle is quite a sight when arriving at Isle of Mull.
One can quickly become addicted to capturing the perfect shot. But in reality the setting is so right every angle is perfect.
A glimpse of Mull, #Iona, Staffa, Loch na Lathaich, #Oban and #Ardalanish is a glimpse in heaven.
Mull clenches your thirst for wildlife/#sealife beauty in an environment that has stayed intact and hopefully will go on so.
It is living nature in its true essence.

Video & photo of new oil painting project


New project

New project

Working on a new project on 100/160 canvas.
This is the second canvas I am using in this size, the first being in acrylic.
Oil painting is far more challenging.
Having said that, I love my work. Artists are given the liberty to feel like a child while acting like an adult… I rarely share the beginnings of my projects, I’d rather show the end product, it kind of takes off the pressure as some can take as long as two years but for one reason or another this time was an exception maybe in order to celebrate my first oil painting on such a big scale…

Better late than never best wishes ;)


Happy new year!

Happy new year!

Being one with nature, this is the feelings we get when surrounded by natural beauty…
Best wishes to you all!

My apologies for the delayed wishes… Just couldn’t get down to posting it here, nevertheless still managed to squeeze it into my Instagram & Facebook account, somehow I find the tagging more time consuming here:)
Does anyone feel the same?

These photos were taken on the day before new year. It was so sunny it put me in the mood for a serious photo shoot session which surpassed my expectations.
Let me know what you think…

My first two portfolios finally completed!


Made with Square InstaPic

I am so very proud to present to you my brand new portfolios!
I finally got down to work on them (painting and photography) after months of procrastination. It took me a solid nine to ten hours each. I was so depleted I felt as if I had run a marathon at its completion…
What do you think of it, any suggestions for the next ones in the future?

Our pet rabbit cuddles photo shoot


Tummy rub

Tummy rub

Our pet rabbit inspired me to a photo shoot.
A while back we introduced her to a new flavor. She sniffed & favored her blanket instead. The contrast in colours were too obvious to ignore a photographic opportunity.
Cuddles, tummy & head rubs are her favorite. She’s a handful (a lot of cleaning up & protecting wires around the house) but well worth it 🙂

My top four B&W beauties!

Today, I have selected out of my whole collection the top four B&Ws!
The first one you might be familiar with, it’s been used once to thank all of you followers for your kindness & patience whenever I was in a pickle with my blog or computer.
The second one is actually from my handbag strap which I believe would make a nice close up & out of the five I took this one was the best.
Having said that I find B&W pure fun & should probably explore a bit more that avenue…
Which one is your favorite? Do you like the monochrome with a blue tint to it too?

I was preparing myself a plate of organic greens washing the earth off & noticed the colour contrast, the beauty of fresh food which lead me to a photo shoot craze… There was no photoshop involved besides the middle one where I played a bit with the colour.
Which one is your favorite?
