Among the peculiar items that already came pre-loaded with my new studio/gallery in the Highlands: this painting of a pile of pups, given a lavishly ornate gilt frame. It's actually a pretty good painting, although the perspective of the head of the dog chewing another dog's ear is off. But hey, what do I know, I paint cartoon ducks in bow ties.

My latest designated island of sanity - a historic old house in the Highlands that, while greatly in need of repair and restoration, suits my purposes perfectly for a workshop/painting studio/getaway.
Removal of a false dropped ceiling that some goob added sometime in the last 50 years revealed glimpses of the amazing original hand-stenciled art-nouveau ceiling.
