In the picture

We absolutely had to buy this picture 'Lochside and Sheep'!  We're quite certain the house third from the left is our house! We visited an talla solais, a week ago with friends who were staying with us. We saw this picture for sale in 'The Market Street Collective' It is by Kim Richards, and we love it. Even if the house isn't based on our house we still love it, and couldn't wait to get it home
where I carried out intensive observations! I wish Kim could come and paint our garage just like the one in her picture! It's on our 'to do' list, but we haven't quite got round to it yet!
The picture captures the mood of the lochside perfectly. Some of the houses have been picked up and put down in different places, but that's what artists can do and it's what separates a picture from a photo
The artist also designed the front cover for the Ullapool & district local telephone directory. I love the line drawing and simple blocks of colour. Yellow pages could pick up a tip or two
available from all good shops in Ullapool  for £4.50 - excellent value
And here are some photos of our house the night before the big birthday party
That's me running around with plates - although I seem to have ground to a halt.
We managed to sit twenty three people down at the table - with a bit of an effort, that involved Niels having to build another table! We had a wonderful pre-party evening together with family and friends. Thank you Janne and Soren for sending them. I still can't believe I didn't take a single photo the entire weekend!
