Old Post Office Harris

£ 450.00

Painting of Harris.  This lovely old post office and phone box is at Stockinish in Harris.  We found this building at the end of a very long and winding single track road.  Sadly, the post office is no longer in use - probably because it is so remote and difficult to reach.   I have used a bit of artistic licence to present the cottage as it would have looked when loved and cared for.  I couldn't resist painting it.  It seems to represent island life in the not too distant past.  Harris is still a vibrant place.  It is the home of the Harris Tweed cottage industry and of course Harris Gin.  I would highly recommend both products!!

This painting can be seen at The ALPHA ART GALLERY in Stockbridge, Edinburgh.
