Scottish Colourists

The Scottish Colourists More than a year ago I set myself a future programme of blogs. The schedule called for one new blog a week. I had a ‘brain-dump’ and over a day or so I found about 400 potential topics and subjects. So far I have managed to stick to the list pretty-much only changing to include breaking news or current affairs. So here we are with this weeks blog, number 67 on the list, scheduled to be all about ‘The Scottish Colourists’. The trouble is that I don’t know much about them. Sorry.

ARTISTS OPEN HOUSE EXHIBITION 2017 13 Addison Road, Hove, Sussex, UK. 8th May 2017. The first weekend is over! This year it was busier than usual.
