Burns' Night is an annual event I grew up with, having been born and raised in Scotland, although I don't think my parents (who were English and Welsh), were particularly enamoured with the event. But I must confess to a liking for haggis, and having recently re-discovered a fondness for my Scottish roots, I thought I'd mark the significant date with a tribute to the Bard of Ayrshire, Robert Burns.
I found this lovely poem of his, 'Yon Wild Mossy Mountains', which to me conveys much of the charm of the Scottish landscape, and this beautiful painting by Gustave Dore seems to match it perfectly.

It's been fun, and I've loved working on this project. Hopefully next year, I'll get my Burns' Night tribute out on time!
See you next time
