Forget the £41M. It’s just beautiful.

The picture is of a grove of olive trees with sunlight coming through the branches leaving dappled shade on the ground. Hopefully I’ll get time to blog tomorrow and I’ll post the picture.

But that is not all. I made another sale – my first foreign buyer. A couple of weeks ago I got an enquiry from a woman in California and after receiving the payment via PayPal I sent it off this morning (see image of the package on the right). I sent it packed in layers of bubble wrap and cardboard, by international express mail which is a lot cheaper than courier companies. The piece she bought is Migdal David Nighttime 3 that appears above at the start of the post.
