About "Secret Garden"
An artist friend’s back garden offered a private corner for this slightly revealing pose. Wearing a shiny, satin kimono and seated on a little garden bench, she looks down at the collection of fallen autumn leaves on the lawn. Because the light changed so drastically during the three hour pose (from being covered in dappled light, to ruthless full sun in the mid-afternoon), I was grateful I had taken photos to complete the painting later.
Life is Fragile - precious and forever changing. Loved ones pass on; friends come and go. I like to record LIFE through my painting.
