Here's H.I.'s painting of her daughter again, just because today needs a splash of colour and warmth.
She is standing in the crystal clear water of the massive lake which is a reservois at a place on the West coast of France, the name of which I have completely forgotten. It is very near the biggest sand dune in Europe - appropriately called La Pila - and is also near Cap Feret of oyster renown.
I know that this painting was made 24 years ago, because this was where her son - then around one year old - said his first sentence, and I am honoured to say that it was addressed to me.
The water stays shallow for about half a mile out, so it is the perfect spot to let children safely paddle whilst keeping an eye out on the sandy, pine-fringed beach.
The boy was standing next to me near the water's edge and we were enjoying a moment of peaceful silence.
On a whim, I said to him, "Get in the water Mars."
He responded with, "No, YOU get in the water," and started to push me from behind.
We both laughed - mainly because of the surprise at the sentence. I think he surprised himself.
Green Eyes is in that painting somewhere too. Roughly in the middle.
