( some unusual competitors in this years hill race )
As usual we took a stall to sell prints and cards of my artwork, strange to be away from the easel and out in public! Always good to get feedback about my work and a wee bit of cash! One lady who stopped for a chat reminded me of a pottery commission i did for her ...TWENTY years ago. scary! where does time go?
I wish i had time to take more photos, I am aware that the games are so normal & common place for us but for people outside Scotland must seem very strange, yes we do have hurling the haggis competitions, men in kilts, bagpipes playing, local venison & salmon to eat, and highland dancers, and the night before a village dance with traditional music and what you'd call Scottish country dancing... we just call it dancing. Culture matters. We shouldn't let these things become theme park parodies, its important to keep it alive and thriving.
