Picking up Windfalls, 2017, watercolour, 19.5 x 19 inches.
I began this painting several years ago and it has passed through several stages before reaching its final version, the ancient apple tree backlit by the hot afternoon sun in our French garden. I saw the tree through the kitchen window and used to marvel at the vigorous design of its ancient branches. As though it knew that I had finished the painting, it fell over and died earlier this year!
