This is a large painting on a block canvas, so no need to frame. It is loosely based on the beautiful gardens of Thornbury Castle which have impressive yew hedges and an abundance of herbaceous borders. Gardens are a passion of mine and the feeling of being in a secret garden is one that I love, a slice of heaven where all your senses are aroused. There is very delicate shifts of colour in this painting especially in the hazy trees in the background, not everything is in sharp focus and it has a deliberate dream like quality. It’s a daydream, a reverie, this painting is an escape portal!
