Scottish connections

My Scottish great-grandmother, I'm sure, would be interested in all my latest work. Over the last few months I have drawn 3 Scottish ruins, donated a drawing to the Scottish charity Trees for Life exhibition. Now, I have completed this drawing of Plockton as a donation for a raffle for "The Clan", who are cycling on behalf of the charity CLAN Cancer Support. Mr Flanagan explained about the event and the charity:

CLAN ( is an independent charity based in Scotland that provides support to those affected by Cancer. We have been truly touched by the work of these amazing people who everyday devote themselves to helping others. We felt, whole heartedly, that it was time for us to do something for them.

So, in September 2011, our team of brave biking soles know as "The Clan"will set out from Aberdeen on the East Coast of Scotland and pedal off towards Plockton on the Atlantic Coast. Between us and our destination lay the Scottish Highlands and 280 kilometres.

Our goal: To raise awareness and much needed funds to help support CLAN and the life changing work they do. For this we need your help.

Please checkout their facebook page: "The Clan" We cycle for CLAN Cancer Support and their webpage: and see how you can help or take part.
