Trees in Scotland - a golf ball catch

Bridget Hunter sent me a nice card with a tree grove in typical Scottish colors. She critically reflects her latest ambitions in playing golf which at present mainly seems to be an excuse to have coffee and a giggle at the club house after a couple of golf balls have been buried between the tree trunks. She calls that exercise.

I think that it is this tabooless exchange of international customs that contributes a lot to the excitement in this postcard exchange. I am impressed by the quality of the gouache which arrived here in perfect condition. Thanks Bridget and good luck with golfing :).

Love those 'Bridget Hunter' trees, and the Bridget Hunter attitude! Golf should never be taken too seriously.

LOL, Albrecht, I agree!
Apart from the wonderful sense of colour I love the life in the brush strokes.

I am beginning to wonder about your golf Bridget...what are you doing out there in the brush? But nonetheless, if it gets you to do these beautiful paintings...then by all means go again!

Ah trees.... this is a wonderful image. I would love to walk this forest, even if it were just looking for a golf ball.

I'd love to sit next to Bridget while she paints one of her small paintings - and then go and have a cup of coffee and a giggle!
