Inspiration from Scotland

Clare Haggas' artistic journey has always been intertwined with a deep appreciation of the natural world, and her connection with Scotland is no exception. 'Caledonia,' the title of her latest painting, is a romantic reference to Scotland.

Haggas has always been captivated by the untamed beauty of the Scottish landscape, the shimmering lochs, misty glens and rolling hills. For her, Scotland represents a timeless sense of wonder and connection with nature. In 'Caledonia,' she aims to encapsulate these sentiments on canvas.

The Painting: 'Caledonia'

'Caledonia' invites viewers into a picturesque Scottish landscape. Taking many weeks to complete, Clare celebrates two bold-faced stags, standing proud against the natural freshness of a vibrant sky.

The stags are symbolic of Scotland's wild beauty and grandeur, representing strength, independence and the enduring spirit of Scotland. Haggas has depicted the stags with remarkable precision and depth, ensuring that they are the heart of the painting.

What 'Caledonia' Means to Clare

'Caledonia' is not just a painting; it's a profound connection to a place that has always held a special place in her heart. It's a way for her to pay homage to the natural world, to the steadfast and powerful creatures of the Scottish Highlands, who personify untamed nature, and most of all, to remember and pay tribute to the very special people in her life and the times spent in dear Caledonia…

"But let me tell you that I love you, that I think about you all the time. Caledonia, you're calling me, and now I'm going home."
