Eigg Series No. 50. Acrylic, ink, salt and varnish on 5×5″ wood
No 50; A view of Eigg from the ferry, with sunlight sparkling on the sea.
Well, this has been such an enjoyable project – mostly the daily discipline of painting, and the feedback that follows, thank you!
Also it’s been enjoyable for the chance to explore subjects I care about – landscape, ecology, social justice, history and the arts. The Isle of Eigg has been a perfect focus for that – a wonderful example of a way of living that’s collaborative, innovative, cultural and above all respectful of our planet.
I’ll be continuing the Eigg project and exhibiting new works as part of two shows this summer:
WEST. The West Coast and Beyond at Gallery Ten (Sat 21st June Private View. Show ends 26th July )

Rose Strang; Eigg Island Solo Exhibition, Whitespace Gallery (Friday 18th July Private View. Show ends Thursday 23rd July)
Map/Address on this link Whitespace (Whitespace is at 25 Howe Street, Edinburgh from April to August 2014)
I’ll send an emailed flyer invite to everyone whose email I have, also it will be on Facebook and Twitter
