30 PAINTINGS IN 30 DAYS - # 25 - ROBBIE BURNS - THE BIRKS OF ABERFELDY


THE BIRKS OF ABERFELDY

3.5" x 4.75" Pastel and watercolour on French Watercolour Paper



I continue with my tree series with the gorgeous colours of birch trees in the highlands. Such a beautiful part of  Scotland, no wonder Robbie Burns was moved to write poetry with sights such as the "Birks" (Birch Trees) of Aberfeldy. It's Robbie Burns Day, so here is my little celebration of all things Scottish.



SHIPPING 16th MARCH 2016 OR LATER - SOME PAINTINGS AVAILABLE FOR IMMEDIATE DISPATCH FROM MY OUTLETS AS NOTED IN DESCRIPTION ON DAILY PAINTWORKS


To the Birks of Aberfeldie?

The little birdies blithely sing,
While o'er their heads the hazels hing;
Or lightly flit on wanton wing
In the birks of Aberfeldie!
Bonnie lassie, will ye go…

The braes ascend like lofty wa's,
The foaming stream, deep-roaring, fa's,
O'er-hung wi' fragrant spreading shaws,
The birks of Aberfeldie.
Bonnie lassie, will ye go…

The hoary cliffs are crown'd wi' flowers,
White o'er the linns the burnie pours,
And, rising, weets wi' misty showers
The birks of Aberfeldie.
Bonnie lassie, will ye go…

Let Fortune's gifts at random flee,
They ne'er shall draw a wish frae me,
Supremely blest wi' love and thee
In the birks of Aberfeldie.
Bonnie lassie, will Stay tuned for more new paintings in the next 30 days.
