Heriot Toun in summer

One Clear Line

Three artists, two boats and a group of small islands in the Minch. 

The four dyptych paintings were subsequently purchased for the  University of St. Andrew's permanent collection.


The Shiant Isles

Pat Law, Ian Stephen and Norman Chalmers

One clear line

It's only one clear line

one of the unwritten rules
between the sharp upper shape
and the lower


a reflection

In this light now
the rocks in air and water
are strong, white, equal.
The liitle green's gone in spaced dark business
