August comes to a close……

The town is buzzing with tourists! It’s such a novelty to hear French, Spanish and the good old American drawl on the streets as I pedal along. Dundonians chat to me and eye the skyline that I’m trying to capture with my pen. The sun is shinning, the wee pigeons are strutting their stuff, the buses are charging past and life is pretty good here in Scotland. I flit from coffee shop to coffee shop preparing my collage to work on outside. Still haven’t quite plucked up the courage to take my trike into the mainstreams and use it as a workspace, you know, use the handle bars to lean on like an easel and transport my work into the local shops to see if they’ll sell for me. But here comes September with the promise of a culture change with tourists flocking to see our fair city. I’m hopeful that they’ll take some local art home as a reminder of their visit!
