I went to the Scottish Modern Art Gallery on wed to see the JD Fergusson exhibition (well actually I lie – I went to use up a fee scone voucher and saw the exhbition as an adjunct to that.) I was tickled pink to discover that JD was in fact a LEITHER!! And was brought up at 7 Crown St with his dad a victualler. I also like the fact that he high tailed it to France as soon as possible and the glorious light and colour of the South of France infused his pictures.
Am hightailing myself to Cambridge today however a wee reminder do sign up for my newsletter. All sign ups get a proper piece of analogue mail and discounts in my etsy shop.
