You could go back to the ARTS index page
or even right back to the HOME page
Or just go somewhere completely different. See if I care!

Assorted Daubs and Other Crap
(Click on the thumbs to pick up the crumbs)

Bloody heck, this page needs rejigging. It dates back to 2000, you know. It needs to be a snazzier wee gallery of a page.
Watch, as they say, this space...

Most of these are for sale, you know.
Do contact me if you're interested in acquiring an original Lowe.
They could be worthless priceless in years to come.

The 'bings' of West Lothian are waste
heaps from oil shale extraction, which
began in the 1850s and continued
until the 1960s, the world's first
large-scale oil refining industry,
and a forerunner of modern 'fracking'.
The iron content of the waste causes the
distinctive reddish tinge, reminiscent
of Uluru (Ayer's Rock) in Australia.
