The finished product with some fine poems by George T Watt, beautifully put together by Dorothy Lawrenson of Perjink Press.
I have been working on a book cover for a book of poetry for George T. Watt. Images of Dundee were requested, not at all my usual thing.
They have now been handed over to the graphic designer to make a selection. It will be very interesting to see the finished product.
I was very pleased last year to be awarded the Rendezvous Gallery Residency Award by the RSW.
I will be going to Lewis for five days to stay in Tigh Alasdair Ruaraidh, 1 Garyvard, an historic house in the South Lochs peninsular. Until 1930 there were no roads to the Lochs district of Lewis and all supplies came by boat and landed at the quayside next to the house. This house also became a centre for religious revival in 1938 with meetings held there till the start of the Second world war.
Duane Meade, owner of the Rendezvous Gallery in Aberdeen had the house restored from dereliction and it is now a "comfortable residence for artists with an adjoining artists’ workshop".
I will be going in August 2012, something tells me that five days will not be enough.How I wish I spoke Gaelic!
