I have recently started a new job hence the lack of posts. Tonight I stopped on the way home to check on an osprey nest, and was treated to a wonderful view of a pair who are in residence. It was a good way to relax after a long and busy day. I have a few days off coming up and will be getting back to some painting then. I hope to have some new watercolours to show you by the end of the week.

- I'm a nature obsessed artist who lives in an little house in a little vilage in the Highlands of Scotland.I wander around a lot in the wilds and spend time just looking at things like birds and moths and trees and rocks. The rest of the time I'm drawing or painting, making odd things out of old stuff and drinking giant cups of peppermint tea. Imogen Greene is my pen name. I like the way it sounds and it just kind of suits what I do.

I spent a while tidying my studio today and rearranged some of my collections, each piece is found by me or gifted by the people who know about my penchant for bones and feathers. I have some generous friends.
I'm about to start a new part time job next week, more about that soon. I think it will be providing lots of inspiration for future artwork....

I had a day in the mountains last week, wore my crampons for the first time this year....
I saw a flock of snow buntings,mountain hare and ptarmigan. There was no wind and no clouds in the sky, a very rare occurrence so I took it easy and savoured the silence and the sun and the snow.

Time in the studio has been passing by quickly, a bit like the start of this year which seems to have disappeared. The top brown hare is my Herald of Spring, and below is the Blue Hare of Winter beating a hasty retreat....I suspect we will have a few more days of snow before winter is over though! Last Saturday was spent in the mountains at Lochnagar. It was a beautiful day matched by the wild life we saw- woodpecker, red grouse, black cock, buzzard, short eared owl, hen harrier and two golden eagles plus both red and roe deer. Fabulous!
