Dear David Hockey,
This cyclamen, above, sits by our front door, and cheers me up now every time I come in or go out of the house.
I hardly ever noticed it until recently, when a painting of yours (Cyclamen, Mayflower Hotel, New York), got me looking at ours with real love and attention. It got me thinking, “Yes! I’ve got to draw our cyclamen myself!”
And just now I thought, I really should write to David Hockney and thank him.
So, thank you.
