  7. MV 'Lord of the Isles' in Art and Craft

    This puts my recent miniature of the 'LOTI' into perspective. The waterline model - entirely hand-made - is at a scale of 1/250, and is about 12 inches long. All the nomenclature etc. is legible. The painted representation of the 'LOTI' berthing at Tiree is one inch long! I seem to like the...
  8. Ferry Fine Mugshot 1

    And now for some ceramic art - or ferramic art, perhaps? My daughter, who is a doctor in the Potteries area, took her twin daughters and myself to an Emma Bridgewater establishment. I was to look after the twins, while she and they produced some Christmas presents...mugs with suitable imprints...
  9. Ferry Fine Mugshot 2

    Could this iconic ferry be related to the 'Lord of the Isles', I wonder? Sorry I was unable to put the CalMac brand on her side, though.

  11. Hebridean Heights and Hazards

    This 'splash' (which will doubtless need to be 'finessed') tries to show the MV 'Clansman' crossing from Mull to Coll, with A' Bheinn Mhor (Ben More = 'Big Ben'!) in the background. The rock in the foreground (splasher's licence!) is a reminder that the context in which CalMac's Masters and...
  12. Ferry High in the Sky

    This photograph, taken at the back of the Co-op Store in Scarinish, shows CalMac's MV 'Clansman' sailing out of Gott Bay, Tiree, on her way back to Oban on a Tuesday evening early in April 2012. She appears to be sailing above a cottage chimney! The multi-layered perspectives offered by a...
  13. New CalMac Ferry

    Now for Something Completely Different...quite different from my usual 'output'. Everything here is new, drawn and painted largely from imagination, apart from using a picture of a standby ship with a similar bow design. Having seen an artist's impression of the new CalMac ship for...
