Scotland, Brechin, High Street.

Yay, I did a Virtual Paintout! Just couldn't miss this one. I'm not even an Anglo-Saxon brand of American and yet the British Isles have always beckoned me, like a misty-eyed siren. Both across La Manche and now, the Atlantic. I know, I know, it's silly and all-to-easy to romanticize the places you've never been to, but come on. Men in skirts? Castles and ruins everywhere? Friendly lake monsters? What's not to feel romantic about? ;)

My favorite music bands? Brits. My favorite beverage? Not coffee.

You'd think I watch the Downton Abbey and read about the Royal Family. No. But I can't wait to see 'Sherlock, the Abominable Bride'!

So, there. I'm an anglophile. I have a soft spot for you British people. I will, one day, be the American tourist on your street. You will tell me by the sketchbook and watercolours, and by the odd mixture of American and Slavic accents. Sit and sketch with me. Until then,
