Nature seems not to have woken up just yet. It's the month of March and we are slowly coming out of a cold, damp and dark winter season.
Putting his colors down on the ground, the artist is scouting the garden landscape for a view that might incite his interest, something that his eye would be caught on. After a few twists and turns, he decides on this group of trimmed trees - a testament to the harshness of French landscape artists: cutting with no merci in order to achieve the desired result.
The work is swift, because of the cold wind that pierces through the artists' clothes. A bright green-yellow background illuminates the entire set-up from the background- perhaps a sign that warmer times will come. The garden is quiet and ready for early spring.
