At the end of the month I'm going back to Barnsley in Yorkshire to visit my friend Melly. She lives next door to a Victorian park in a house filled with stained glass windows. A family of hedgehogs lived at the back of the garden. It was extremely hot and I don't think we left the garden for three weeks. We drank a lot of strong iced tea.
Close up and in the shimmering light the colored glass would later inspire paintings.
