Tiptoeing into the kitchen to get a cup of water one night, I found myself drenched in the light of a full moon.  I was amazed to find that it was bright enough to see colours by - surely the moon in England was never this bright.  Later I painted this picture in violets, greens and blues.  In the background the pine covered hills are dark against a milky moonlit sky.  Rows of vines are touched with silver, while in the foreground roadside weeds (that originally sat in a jam jar in the window) are transformed into a night garden by the silvery light.
