I'm still pretending to tidy up the studio, and just found this picture.
This little Swedish number is Lady Magnon. The photo dates back to a day in September 1972; the day on which we stuffed two small children, my box of colours, and a mountain of chattles, into a hired Ford Transit van, and set off for a new life in France.
I must have been 25 at the time, and Lady M just 12 (if her present age is to be believed).
I don't remember being at all anxious about moving to a new country, and, by the look on Lady M's face; nor did she.
'Throw caution to the winds', I used to tell myself; and we did. I've lived by that maxim ever since!
