It is great fun to travel to a new destination each month with The Virtual Paint Out Group and I enjoy doing a bit of research about each region and it's people. I was especially fascinated by Scotland and it's long tumultuous history. Both of the castles below date from the 13th century though fragments of vitrified stone found at these sites indicate probable occupation of these regions dating back to the 6th century.

|Farm Scene, Scotland, 6x8, oil. SOLD|
|Urquhart Castle Overlooking Loch Ness, 6x8, oil.|
Urquhart Castle was my favorite subject and I have one painting left that is a back view of the ruins. I think I might add a hint of "Nessie", the Loch Ness Monster in the water. She is surely out there watching over these old ruins.
This last painting is available in my Ebay Store.
