I was lucky enough to return to the beautiful French seaside town of Collioure last week with my son.  There is colour everywhere.  Colour on the doors, windows, walls and even on some stairs I just spotted on my wanderings.  Collioure is home of the Fauvism movement literally meaning Wild Beasts. This short lived movement used deep and brilliant colours and exaggerated perspectives.  Derain, Braque, Picasso and Matisse were all inspired by the harbour, quaint streets and castles of Collioure. My mother loved it here so. She was with me in spirit on the wind across the sea, in the waves and in the chorus of the song birds.
