Return from the Americas
I got home at the end of July from the trip of a lifetime. It’s taken a while to settle back in to life in Scotland but a beautiful Autumn, supportive friends and some commissions to set my mind to have helped so much.
I’m now putting some things together for Art Amatoria to take to the Edinburgh Art Fair (Corn Exchange 16th – 18th November). A real mixture, some Argentine landscapes, armadillo or two and possibly a flamingo, do go along to have look.
My latest commission is turning out to be an exciting one.
I’ve been asked to create my own version of a Victorian sketchbook based on what I find at an estate near Jedburgh in the Borders. Having initially thought I would spend a year working on this, there is such scope I have a feeling it will actually stretch much further. There’s something very special about the idea of the final book being added to their library as a permanent record. A completely dreamy project for me. Regular escapes from Edinburgh to walk and draw.
Caroline Hepburne-Scott is looking forward to Summer Exhibitions.
After what has felt like a long winter in the Borders, the snow has just disappeared. The inspiration from changing seasons is wonderful, lambs are arriving and the snowdrops and crocuses give hope that Spring is really on its way.
I have been working in my studio, planning and creating for what will be my first solo exhibition in June with Art Amatoria in Edinburgh, as well as the summer exhibition at Mellerstain House near Kelso. I will keep you updated with details and dates nearer the time.
