In May 2013 Ian’s painting odyssey around the British Coast began. He undertook a visual journey around the varied and beautiful coast of the UK, from the rugged cliffs of Cornwall to the big skies of the Scottish Western Isles, and as he went Ian painted beautiful and atmospheric seascapes and coastal landscapes, which he is now selling to raise money for the cancer charity Macmillan.
He was inspired to do this wonderful project as a tribute to the loss of his dear friend, Henry James MacPherson Rooney (aka Mac) who fought cancer for many years.
He painted 100 oil on canvas works which he has named ‘The Wee Ones” as each one is 6 inches (15.4cm) square.
They cost just £50 each, of which 30% goes to Macmillan Cancer.
I bought these 2 for my husband’s birthday:
The first is Wester Ross (looking to Skye) and the second is Lydd, Kent
You can view the whole collection on Ian’s Flickr Stream and see which ones are still available.
Please support Ian’s wonderful project by sharing this post online, or better still by buying one of these Wee Beauties!
