Wonderful texture and depth, Congratulations on your sale!


Thank you Pasadena, FL for your order of my "Thistle" painting. The North Sea is a rugged sea with huge white caps which I have photographed while flying to Norway from Aberdeen. They are brave souls that work in that weather. dals

Congratulations and nicely done

Thanks for the canvas print order Miami. Enjoy! dals

Many thanks for your order from NY. I hope you will enjoy this roughness of the North Sea painting as it is a wicked sea. Perhaps you have a little Scottish ancestry as it is lovely there and I enjoyed my years living there except for bone chilling weather. "dals"

Congratulations on your sale!!!

Very nice! Congratulations on your $ale!

Thank you Coupar Angus, Perthshire for "Thistle order". I hope you enjoy this print. I painted this for my Husband's birthday as he worked at Thistle. The original is framed in sea green fabric with the Aberdeen framer's signature. dals

It is a beautiful painting. It looks just like the weather and the color of the sea that I remember in Scotland.
