I lead a simple life in Scotland as a child.
We didn't have a tv.
When I was a toddler we had an outhouse.
We played outside as often and as long as possible.
Food was simple.
We heated our homes with a coal fireplace so it was cold most of the time. We went to bed when the sun went down to conserve fuel. We froze all night. We had to start a fire every morning and it took most of the day to heat up the one room that was warm in the house.
We wore uniforms to school. We got wacked with a ruler if we spoke in class.
Our parents wacked us if we stepped out of line.
Life was hard, but life was simple.
I tend to like simple art. Sort of folk-arty.
Simple colors. Simple character. Simple life.
Thanks for stopping by!
