I had an tree in Spain…

Sounds like a line from a film.
Actually it was like a film to live in beautiful Spain among the olive trees.
My family and I lived in a wonderful place in Andulacía for 5 years, on a finca at a riverbank. In the small village where we met so many lovely people. One of them asked me recently to paint her favourite tree for her. She wanted to have a bit of Andalusia in her home in England. So I painted this very old, gnarly, great Árbol Olivo.
This special commission brought back so many good memories. Both for me as for the owner!
