Suilven II

56 x 74cm
Alexander Moffat OBE RSA


Gouache on paper

From a series of studies of this distinctive mountain in the Scottish Highlands.


‘Suilven rolls round and shoulders itself

Up from and out of the earth

There are no fossils in these rocks

For they predate cellular life’


These lines begin Alan Riach‘s poem written especially for the artists – they seem to fit the three paintings of Suilven just perfectly, don’t they?  The full poem’s in the gallery, a special treat for gallery visitors.
