Thank goodness you are not effected by the pandemic!

Be glad you are in B├ędoin and not here.

What a wonderful thing it is to have yourglorious paintings to comfort/ distract us in these troubled times!

I've been so enjoying your most recent paintings.
This one has a striking surprise, in that - in the wind here (further south) - the undersides of olive leaves still have a very pale green tinge to them - just like those close to your cypresses. But most these are an 'ash-ash' colour rather than 'green-ash'.
Thing is, I've learned to trust what you see and to believe it. So now comes the real mystery in this painting.
Here, in S. Italy many English-inherited houses are called 'Two Trees'. They're always cypress - and I've never seen any that aren't placed right at the entrance gateway to the drive of a house.
I wonder what you'd find if you did a little excavation around the strange couple now surrounded by ash-ash olives...! xx
