For 120 years our local River Lossie has been spanned at Lossiemouth (in northern Scotland) by a wooden bridge. After years of neglect it became unsafe a couple of years ago. A new bridge has been built and will be opened in 2 weeks. Straight after that, the old bridge will be demolished. This painting (and prints) are my farewell to the bridge I've known so long: 'Lossiemouth Old Bridge Sunset.'

So many good lines in this piece by Richard Murphy. "Anyone who thinks that problem is best addressed by punishing those already least well off whilst rewarding those most well off is promoting an economic policy that looks as if it was designed as an instrument of old-fashioned class warfare. When that policy also cannot work it looks as if it is about something worse than that: it is instead about deliberately crushing people." https://www.thenational.scot/politics/20117566.richard-murphy-nothing-moral-another-recession/
