Painting is poetry that is seen rather than felt and poetry is painting that is felt rather than seen.

As you may or may not know I have a rather strange love of washing lines. I started to take photos of them but then feared people might think me some kind of pervert - I am starting to photograph gates and gateways now, much more acceptable don't you think? . In my surfing around looking at washing lines (they can't touch you for it), I have just discovered a wonderful Scottish artist by the name of John Lowrie Morrison, how on earth have I not heard of him before? My new header pic is one of his paintings.
Unfortunately Blogger will not allow me to add Text to my blog any more, or any fresh gadgets actually (anyone else having that problem?) so I can't acknowledge the artist's work below it. I haven't 'upgraded' my blog to a new fangled one and can't get my head round Google + and the like, am I alone in this inadequacy? Please can anyone tell me where Gadgets have gone?
Anyway, the header is this picture:

I am off to drool over more of his work, he seems to paint a lot of cottages which I also love and uses the most gorgeous bright colours.
I have just blogged next door again too, a couple of posts and apologies if some are duplicated, I have been up since 6.30 am this morning and am not a morning person. I seem to be next door rather a lot lately so if I am ever not here do call by at Cait's Photos, you may well find me there and you especially will always be welcome. I keep the kettle on the Rayburn at all times. My latest pics were of the recent Blue Moon which actually was not blue in these parts, well not blue in the sky but strangely some reflections in the river were of a bluey hue.
Do call by,
Before you do, treat youself and listen to this:
Bye for now,
