George’s Postcard Note: Breakfast on the small porch at the head of the steps leading down into the garden — so pleasant it could last most of the morning. It often does as we take a vacation from our vacation! Morning light, nearly due east at the end of summer, casts light on part of Peter’s face, and also along the valley, which runs east-west here. The rough stonework of the wall behind him belongs to an adjoining house. I was interested in contrasting the brushwork shadows of its stones with blue and green color pencil lines of his shirt, chair, and railing.
