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.
