Return Of The Lower Falls Glen Nevis Painting

Image
I grew up in the South of England, both my parents were Londoners but they always had a love of the Scottish Highlands, they visited frequently and had friends living in Fort William, I have fond memories of family holidays here.
For all of my youth a particular painting hung above the fireplace in our front room, in fact you can see it in the photo taken at Christmas some time in the early 1970's (yes, that's me, the painting is on the right above the old 1970's electric fire). It was painted by my father, he was an amateur oil painter but only ever painted 3 paintings.


After Mum (on the right) passed away in 1995 the painting ended up  in my attic and it's pretty much stayed there over the years, even here at Pottery House.


It didn't really mean much apart from the memory of it always being on the wall at home, until I showed it to a close friend and he immediately said "That's Lower Falls in Glen Nevis".


I had to investigate so one…
