Hockney and me

Hockney's 'Bigger Tress near Warter' is at the York City Art Gallery. It took my breath. 50 canvases painted plein air with incredible fluidity and energy. Seeing his masterpiece reminds me of my dad, that he too sees colour and line and that we are connected through Hockney's tree branch pink brush strokes and big eyes for landscape. We had tea at 'Betty's' tea room and held hands and it was the perfect Sunday.
