Love the light glow Val, that drink looks inviting............;o)

Aye a wee dram would be verra welcome! Love the glowing lamplight!

Re Carole's comment, that's what I thought...!

Lovely all-over glow to the scene Val. I've never used pastelmat before, must try it.

It's all been said Val, that whisky surely gives a warm glow!

One a'fore ye go! Is that bottle empty Val? Lovely glow from the lamp...mmmmm!

Lovely glowing painting. Love the subject matter as well.

Took a peak and glad I did
