Work in progress in my studio:

The studio last year, with elderflower wine in progress. (Which has the most amazing flavour.) This year we made ten gallons! That's an Elder tree outside the window. :

^ The scene would be so much better if they were all wearing lycra cycling shorts, plastered with their various doner logo's.

(D.H. Lawrence said Cézanne painted the appliest apples, and there's no arguing with that. But Macgregor painted the potatoyest potatoes.)

Thanks for the introduction to these guys. Wonderful work. Guthrie in particular reminds me of Bastien Lepage (and George Clausen). There's a cracking example of Lepage also in the National Gallery, Edinburgh. Hanging with the best of John Singer Sargent and Frederick Church...

Yes, I've loved that Lepage painting too since i first saw it in my mid-teens on my first visit tae embra.

Guthrie and Macgregor were both remarkable painters, as were many of the still-underrecognised Glasgow Boys. I might post some more of their work.

Wow - impressive work, Harvey. Appreciate sharing this for our visual benefit.

The other content shared here is lovely as well, of course.


I recently happened across Stephen Wiltshire's etchings of cityscapes. Philistine, am I.

This is interesting, Supper at Emmaus by Pontormo Carucci AKA Jacopo da Pontormo 1494 – 1557. The picture dates from 1525. Apparently this is in the Uffizi in Florence although I couldn't see it on their website.

Polish surrealist Zdzisław Beksiński has become very well known for his bleak and disturbing visions since his death in 2005. many of you probably already know of him. But for those who don't...

There's a very enjoyable film of his life The Last Family by Polish filmaker Jan P. Matuszyński, highly recommended if you like Beksinski and or painter biopics.

And Strinberg's own paintings weren't bad either...
