Yesterday was my first full day on Lewis and I really felt like I needed to get out and look at the island. After picking up a few supplies I jumped in the car and started to drive. The roads were clear and the views spectacular. I spent a long time watching a murder of hooded crows mobbing a pair of large raptors above the road near Dalbeg, stopped off at a Norse Mill and Kiln, and then at Gearraanan Blackhouse. After a few hours of sight seeing I headed back across the island. It was an exhilarating drive on a single track road through blanket bog with spectacular panoramas . Awesome!
I worked into the night on a series of paper based works and a couple of iPad based paintings.
