"I have 3 Annie Broadley paintings, from different periods in her development as an artist, one of which is my all time favourite possession. Can one actually possess a work of art? Anyway, it hangs in pride of place in my library/sitting room, invariably drawing visitors into its ken, attracting compliments and questions. "Under the Blossoms" was painted in Croatia but speaks to a universal audience. I await with eagerness the next exhibition of Annie's work, to discover how she has responded to this global pandemic and how her insights are manifested in her painting."
