My postcard from Vivien is a double delight - golden yellow on the front and an array of blues on the reverse.
So what's my meaning in the title of this post? Obvious! When one is lucky enough to receive a postcard from Vivien, you just know that everyone else will be a shade of green. Green with envy.
The front depicts some of the fields close to where Vivien lives. The bright gold is oil seed rape, now grown abundantly in many parts of England during spring. In huge fields it's visually mind blowing.
On the reverse Vivien's used gouache. Blue sky and a blue and turquoise sea, done from memory in a 'wish you were here' right now kind of moment.
Thank you so much Vivien. I love both sides equally -
The fields remind me of my family home ........ and
The sea.... yes, me too, I'd love to be there right now...... !
