dad4Our dear and much loved dad (Malcolm Strang) passed away on Monday 18th April after a year-long struggle with illness.

I will take a break from painting for a short while, but will return to it very soon, with much inspiration.

Dad loved nature, getting out into the countryside, cooking on an open fire, canoeing and exploring. He and mum have been taking us for outdoor adventures since we were babies.

I’ve posted some photos (below) of dad in his favourite places, which feature in many of my paintings.

He was much loved by many, many people and will be very much missed.

Our last big walk, in June last year – we found a beautiful view of the silvery Tweed, behind Neidpath Castle. Dad’s just turned round to give me a smile.
