With only ten days to pick our olives and prune around a thousand vines, among many other farming chores here on our Andalusian finca, this post has few words and is all about the pictures. Suffice to say, I always felt the dry chalkiness of thickly applied gouache was a perfect medium for expressing the tonal aridity of the fabulous Atacama Desert. As ever, I hope all of you who pass this virtual way agree! Wishing all my visitors, readers and followers a 2018 as epic as the incredible Chilean desert itself…

Wonderful paintings, Adam! And Happy Anniversary to you and Dido. What are you going to do with all those olives?
Thank you so much Mary, and as for the olives we will do what we always do and get them pressed for oil at the local press, hopefully tomorrow.
Wow what an artist! Congratulations for that wonderful life together.
