At the End of the Garden, 1998, oil 26" x 31".
The back garden of this very old house is particularly appealing to me, as it is enclosed by high, ivy-clad walls, roofs of old barns and a delightful old dovecote with a turret next door. The different elements of this composition are put together from figures and places photographed or remembered or taken from my sketchbook. The figure tying up the daisies is a version of my own attempts to do this job.
