 I am a beginner in painting starting in acrylics. I'm trying very hard to become right brained instead of left brained and although I feel it, I cannot yet express it. whatever "it" is. I just want to tell you how incredibly beautiful, emotional and sensual your paintings are. I'm so glad I stumbled upon your website. Your work is exquisite and touches my heart.
Thank you for giving this beauty to the world!

dear ken,
After finding your site by accident, i just had to drop you a line to say thankyou.

i am an art teacher, working in a secondary school in flint, flintshire, and i am currently researching landscapes for a forthcoming GCSE project. Beautiful work, and an excellent web site, that is both easy to navigate and extremely informative. I will be using your site as a resource which will hopefully inspire the kids to want to paint a landscape of thier own!!! It has also given me a few ideas for my summer hols!!
thanks again Vicky Hancocks P.S If it all goes well, i will e-mail you some results!

Dear Mr. Bushe,
 Thank you for sharing your incredible talent with the rest of us who can only look on in wonder. Your paintings have a round luminosity that draws me in emotionally and spiritually. I love Scotland anyway and all the things you paint are things that speak to me, too. When I walked through Kelvin Grove at night last January, the bare trees etched against the pumpkin sky were so poignant I almost cried. To be able to not only see but create that inner vision is indeed a God-given gift.

Dear Rebecca,
It wasn't me on the telly, it was Gavin who formed the Cloud Appreciation Society a few years ago, and who wrote the book.
If you cut and paste this link - http://www.cloudappreciationsociety.org/
it will take you to Gavin's website and you can buy it from there.

I definitely recommend the book though!
Every best wish,
Ken ps. I tried e-mailing you but it bounced.

Hi Ken,
we mailed each other a while ago. I'm another one whose been getting back into the painting of landscapes ("oh no", you may groan...). I was wondering whether you've got a method for transporting paintings from location to 'indoors'. I've been walking for quite a distance with a wet painting in a large plastic bag held at the top so the air gets in...it looks a bit daft and is a bit tiring on the arms. Also, do you rate acrylics at all, or are oils superior, do you think? (I have found them awkward when outside...what with drying time and needing turps etc. I hope you don't mind all the questions...
and, by the way, your web site/ work is increasingly special and uplifting!!!!!
Cheers,
Rob Davies.

Hi Ken!
My name is Ins, I'm from Portugal and im painting too. I like veryyyyy muchhh of yr paintings, its gorgeous and they prove that you is a very sensitive man and a nature lover! I like specially landscapes.The mother nature gives us so many beautiful things to paint that i think isnt rigth to paint 'abstracts', but...ok i know...sometimetimes our soul ask for soul and it is necessary make something...and this something is: 'abstract painting'.
I paint landscapes too. My earliest paintings was about old streets of Lisbon, Tagus river (of Lisbon Too)and about anothers places from Portugal. Now i paint Algarve's beach,rivers, sunset, and so on. Sometimes i paint others things...depend my soul state.
Ihavnt web site now but when i have, i say you and after yu can see my paintings.

Bye bye Ken and god luke for yu and for yr work.
kiss for yu

fantastic work - your paintings really capture an "essence" (call it the sublime...I'm not sure it has a name!) Gorgeous colours - unmistakably Scottish light. I think you've succeeded in expressing the reason why lanscape painters paint.

i am currently an art student in michigan. my concentration is painting and ceramics. i caught your site while surfing the net and just had to express my love for your work. thank you for sharing a slice of the world through your eyes. i hope someday to be able to do the same. I have been a landscape muralist for several years. For me it's very hard to find art that is so very expressive through both nature and color. Is there any where else i can view your work?
thx

I love your work--it looks like mine a bit. Funny how that happens, but not at all often, I must say. I've moved from earth to sky in recent months, and am including a bit of water now too, playing with glazing, scumbling. The colors are gorgeous. In fact, I like the light in your paintings even better than mine. Who do you like among contemporary painters, if anyone? Because I'm so close to New York, I can't help but be exposed to the Death of Painting phenomenon, although I have to ignore it largely. I feel compelled to capture light and color regardless, do you? Is the artist a mirror? a channel? Anyway, it seems a very self-sufficient and full-bodied oeuvre, well-rounded, balanced. Thanks for the treat of seeing your stuff online. the website is wonderfully easy to work. Blessings.

It's great to see a modern landscapist succeeding in spite of the seemingly endless pursuit of the inane and the facile work of so many, so called, installation artists - keep up the good work. Having returned to painting in the past few years I have battled with abstraction. Only now can I be honest and recognise I was doing this more for acceptance from peers that regard themselves as avant garde, than because it's what I personally yearned to do. Like you I am fascinated by the landscape and work such as yours inspires me to be more honest about what I want to paint! Excellent work Ken - you're doing us all a great service.

Friends, it has been realy a pleasure to observe your work.Regarding the application of blues and greens in some of them ,from my point of view a little less of such colors could improve the visual impact, as they are the feeling is of a fantastic landscape.Maybe that was the idea. Reiner Maria Rilke said artwork is on absolute solitud, this regarding the idea that no comment is tolerated, just perception of viewer. Best regards. Mario
