Wee Scottish House in Straiton


Acrylic 14.5 x 20 cm
Bridget Hunter

This is wish fulfillment - to own a landscape painting by Bridget Hunter. What a temptation this must have been for postal workers but thank goodness they delivered it safely to me.

Trying not to gush over Bridget's work because it really speaks for itself. Click on the image to enjoy a bigger version so you can enjoy the brush strokes and the colours.

It shows how much Bridget loves this landscape. Straiton, near the Galloway Forest is where she lived happily for twenty years with her three daughters going to the tiny two teacher school. She says, 'the hills are grazed by black faced sheep and lower down by hardy beef cattle. It's Autumn now and the leaves are turning and being blown off the trees by the squally showers we're getting'.

Beautiful. Thank you, Bridget.

What a beautiful Bridget Hunter landscape - again, it makes me long to visit Scotland. Thanks for posting the bigger version Robyn, I love seeing the free brushwork.

Bridget's wonderfully spontaneous style captures perfectly this little burst of sunshine amid the 'squally showers.'

you have such beautiful strokes Bridget...and I'm amazed at how it changes with the subject...I've just visited your card from France. Both beautiful with their own identity.

This is so you Bridget, another beautiful painting! I also love the strokes and wildness about it. Your paintings make my eyes want to dance around the painting for awile.
