A Cottage Garden is acrylic on gallery wrapped canvas and is 61 x 76.5cm. It is ready to hang. Cottage gardens are calm and sweet and relaxed. I wanted to express this using colours that represent peace and space and light.
"In green old gardens, hidden away
From sight of revel and sound of strife,
Here I have leisure to breathe and move,
And to do my work in a nobler way;
To sing my songs, and to say my say;
To Dream my dreams, and to love my love;
To hold my faith, and to live my life.
Making the most of its shadowy day."
- Violet Fane, 1843 - 1905, In Green Old Gardens
