I created this miniature painting some years ago, for our very first Gaita CD (recorded together with Misericordia). It is based on a few different pictures from around 1400, but the musicians are portraits of us (a give-away is that you never see depictions of male pattern baldness in that…
My pastel portrait of Andy can currently be seen (till 3rd January 2018) in the Filmhouse café in Edinburgh. It was completed in one of Anna’s morning classes for the Edinburgh Drawing School, held at our flat on Haddington Place.

It was a mixed experience to get this site set up, so I hope it is of interest to some!
