Cottages of Uist – oil series

I love trying out new things, I am currently working on a series of small oil paintings on board with the theme of Uist’s iconic cottage images.

When I say iconic, they are iconic as far a visitors and residents of “the Uist’s” are concerned, but they may not have been discovered by the wider community.  If you want to see more – why not plan a visit to the Western Isles. You can still find solitude in North Uist, Benbecula, South Uist, Eriskay and Barra.

Here are first couple, still to finish…

Contraflow – Innerleithen Music Festival art exhibition by Hazel McLean and Lorna Boak August 2018

 

Contraflow – Innerleithen Music Festival art exhibition by Hazel McLean and Lorna Boak August 2018

It has been a busy summer, full of family time and of course plenty of art too!!

I recently participated in my first joint exhibition. The title ‘Contraflow’ relates to the salmon’s wisdom of catching the strong undercurrents to return to spawn. The Tweed homes many, and is a symbol of fertility, resourcefulness and wisdom that we wish to learn. I was delighted to be asked by local artist Hazel McLean to join her at St Ronan’s Hotel, Innerleithen as part of the Innerleithen Music Festival.

A new journey

At last!! I’ve done it!  Having spent the last year testing the water, I have finally made a website – albeit a basic one!!

You can find lots more images on my facebook page: @LornaBoakArt.  Looking forward to painting lots more and seeing where this journey is going to take me.

I’d love to hear from you if you want to ask about any of the paintings you see on here or are interested in commissioning me.
