I am just back in Glasgow from a week away on the Isle of Mull. On Mull the view from our window was this, and the only sounds around were symphonies of bird song and the occasional lamb bleating.
My brain is now adjusting to the view of the flats opposite, pigeons flying about, traffic noises & the sounds from our neighbouring flats!
If you are ever in Mull, you should head to Calgary (yep- that's were the Calgary in Canada gets its name from). Not only is there a gallery, there is also a sculpture woodland walk, which takes you down to the most gorgeous bay.
And whilst exploring Balamory - oops, I mean Tobermory, check out An Tobar. We were lucky enough to see an exhibition by Gillian Murray aptly entitled 'Scotland's Islands and Edges' there. Her work has such a sense of serenity to it, which I appreciate even more after experiencing a week on Mull. Everywhere I looked around the island was inspiration for possible future work, the colours, the hills, the wildlife, I could go on!
Now back to reality...
