A Couple of Rows of Leeks., 2012, oil 26 x 30 inches.
Outside our village which sits in a wooded valley, the ground rises onto the flat plains of vast fields which stretch as far as Poitiers. Here the hill is steep with criss-crossing pathways and scruffy beech hedges and small trees and tracks, probably once used for motorcycle racing by the village lads. At the bottom the owner of a strip of land is growing a few vegetables.
