Almond Tree in Blossom

"the days are all good now, not in terms of the weather, on the contrary, there are 3 windy days for one still one, but as for the subjects of orchards in blossom. I have a lot of trouble painting because of the wind, but I fix my easel to pegs stuck in the ground and work anyway, it’s too beautiful." Vincent To Theo. Arles, on or about Sunday, 1 April 1888

In addition to that I now have another 4 or 5 studies of orchards and I’m going to start a no. 30 canvas of the same subject. This zinc white that I’m using now doesn’t dry. If everything was dry I’d send a consignment at once. Only the days are all good now, not in terms of the weather, on the contrary, there are 3 windy days for one still one, but as for the subjects of orchards in blossom.
