Callanish (Calanais) stone circle is possible one of the most famous historic monuments in the UK, an icon much featured in guide books and on postcards. It's well visited despite it's remote location, yet it can be a quiet and lonely place if visiting in the midst of Winter. I spent a week in February 2012 studying the ancient remains and beautiful landscapes of the West Coast of Lewis, and this piece features a section from the main Callanish site. The painting was begun in the old farmhouse beside the Callanish stones (Isle of Lewis, Scotland) and completed back in my studio, and reflects the weak Winter sun and cold winds on the day I began painting it. The place is magical and ambiguous on any day, but especially so out of season and in cold weather.
