Happy February

Snow - I expect, but rain? Maybe - but not this much! Big drops have been falling since I woke up, and it doesn't look like stopping any time soon. It puts me in mind of my favorite Jack Vettriano painting "The Singing Butler". A print of which, hangs in my Mothers office at our family home in Scotland. For those of you who don't know Jack Vettriano is a Scottish artist born in the 50s, who happens to share the same Birthday as my eldest daughter. His paintings remind me of the old Rat Pack guys, and now the Oceans films. Think Film Noir. He is often criticized for his style of painting, but his use of light is what makes his work amazing to me.
