Loch Fyne, Argyll: watercolour by my father.


The paintings in this website, with the exception of Robert Mulhern's and Lys Hansen's portraits, are all by my parents, Robert Tainsh Munn and Elizabeth Munn (nee Stevenson). An exhibition of their work was held at the Innovation Park, Stirling University, in 2011 and there will be a second showing at Glasgow Art Club, 185 Bath Street, Glasgow, from May 5 to May 28, 2012. Here are further samples of work by both – click on any of the images to view it full size.
