I love to create imaginary gardens teeming with life.
“Is the spring coming?" he said. "What is it like?"... "It is the sun shining on the rain and the rain falling on the sunshine...” ― Frances Hodgson Burnett, The Secret Garden
I wanted to capture a lush abundance of nature, a healthy rainforest, unspoilt and bursting with life, seeds being blown on the breeze and new fresh shoots growing and then the rainforest sprite, a child at one with nature. A dreamlike vision of the earth before all the pollution and very saddening destruction of the rainforests. Really not that long ago.
This is a mixed media piece combining painting and collage I also used gold encaustic wax.
