One of the most perfect places on earth is Scotland. My brother Micah and his wife Suzanne lived in the Perthshire area for the longest time, up on Sheriffmuir Road (think Monty Python and the Holy Grail). That’s probably my favorite place in all of Scotland, so I was sad when they moved to the Isle of Skye, but, heck, it’s the Isle of Skye – absolutely one of the most beautiful places on earth.

When I last visited Scotland, we took the Portree Ferry (near their house) and headed for the Outer Hebrides to see the Isle of Lewis and the wild ponies of Eriskay. Suzanne and I are big explorers.

The year after that, we met at our old family place on Edisto Island, SC, where we try to meet every year.

This August our annual family trip was nixed due to the pandemic. But I could dream, right? And I could paint. Hence, this abstract expressionism I painted called From NYC to Isle of Skye.
