When my mother left Amsterdam,

her friend Becky gave her a picture she’d painted of a house plant, a bottle of mineral water and a bottle of gin. As a child I loved the sense of light and sunshine that streamed through the painting and it’s the first thing I look at as I wake up now. Hennie Haworth’s illustrations for The Guardian remind me of the same feeling.
