View from the Banff Castle, located at the end of our street.

I have recently moved to Banff on the north east coast of Scotland.  We live in a house that was once a free school, built in 1803, with our office and workshop upstairs and our living space downstairs with a large cottage garden out back.  The coast here is wild and beautiful.  Dolphins regularly migrate through this part of the North sea at this time, and the days are long– dusk coming around midnight.

I am excited to see how my work will develop here– given the space and freedom this new living situation provides, as well as the rich inspiration the sea brings– every hour the colour shifts and moods produce a kaleidoscope of colours in the interplay of sea, sky and sunlight.

I plan to continue unpacking my altar today– what are you doing on this longest day?
