We (the family) popped down to the Scottish Parliament today to view the SQA’s art exhibition. We had a particular interest because Alison’s Higher Art expressive piece had been chosen for inclusion.

I tried to get some piccies of it but I had trouble with the reflections from the windows. Anyway, here’s a wee taster of it (full size-ish ones on picasa).

The other works were all excellent as well, with some particularly stunning pieces. Certainly as good as many I’ve seen that are considered ‘good’ art.

Update:

The SQA very kindly sent me a high-quality image of Ali’s painting (also available on my Picasa album):

(Now all we have to do is keep pushing for the original to be returned)

  1. Very, very good! I wish I had a talent in art like that! Well done Alison. There’s really not that much wrong with the youth of Scotland when you see things like this – despite what we may read in the papers! Congratulations to all those whose artwork is on display.
