Looking toward Greenock
Yesterday was a truly lovely day, so much so that as the working day finished and twilight beckoned, I decided to enjoy the remains of the day with a delightful coastal walk.
It may seem strange that working near the seashore you take your window vista with a pinch of salt (yep-it’s there every morning I wake too), but I was astounded by the beauty of the day.
Perhaps, as there wasn’t snow, wind or rain (no jacket required), it was milder than it has been in weeks, meant I didn’t want to miss out enjoying the day so, off I went with a spring in my step and Spring in the air!
As you can see, my route took me from sunshine to twilight, just look at the remarkable shades of colour and light.

If you’re a fan of Sir Walter Scott novels or an Arbroath Smokie, then this art print – Auchmithies Last Stand by Douglas Roulston is right up your street! The cliff-top, former fishing village is on the East coast of Scotland, about three miles north east of Arbroath. The derelict harbour in this scene, was once home to many fishing boats in the 1800’s.
Auchmithie became famous for the origin of the Smokie – a gutterd Haddock sold in pairs and smoked in pits buried in the ground – the term is now protected by EU Law to say that if the Smokie is made out-with 8km of the Arbroath Town House, then it isn’t an Arbroath Smokie!

Working the Land – Signed Limited Edition Giclee Art Print by Arie Vardi
About the Artist
Arie was born in Chile in 1956.
After graduating in Graphic Design in Jerusalem he became a member of a Kibbutz on the edge of the Negev Desert where he began to experiment with jewellery.
His paintings are mainly landscapes, inspired by a deep connection with the Scottish countryside and in particular with Perthshire and the West Coast. He begins with sketches on the spot and reference photographs.
These are taken back to the studio with the aim to capture the mood and emotion felt when originally contemplating the scenery. This in turn creates a constant change in the work. The elemental form of the land, especially the connective points of the sea and shore or hill and sky, is of particular interest.
Colour and vibrancy are essential to the work and these in turn are inspired by Arie’s Mediterranean roots. Many of Arie’s fine works are in private and public collections.
