Each month, I thought I'd choose a painting at random, new or old and share its story with you. Over the years I've made so much work, sometimes I'm surprised by what's gone before. Though seeing them again I remember everything. I'm not a writer but hope you enjoy this very honest and personal insight into my work.
'Lavender Garden', is November's random choice....
Lavender Garden.acrylic on canvas.110x120cm.
'Lavender Garden' was inspired by the grounds of 'Residence Le Palais des Gouverneurs', St Martin,
on Ile de Ré, where I spent two long summers .
It's a beautiful island - Atlantic winds, flat land and bicycles, sea salt, lavender and wild flowers.
Days were spent cycling for miles with gypsy, my dog in the basket, exploring different villages, markets and beaches....probably drinking too much rose, being a bit lonely, but really inspired -constantly sketching, painting and people watching.
At dawn before the heat, we'd go and sit in the dew...... smoke cigarettes, drink coffee and get to know each tree in the garden personally.
This painting's primary objective, was to celebrate the beauty and individuality of these trees, these new friends.
I consciously included upright hollyhocks, the straight path and ordered planting to highlight their diversity, character, colour and shape. The colours are for dusk.
Thinking about the atmosphere of an earlier painting 'Lets Play', 'Lavender Garden' is a hazy memory of me and Gypsy, on an island in a garden of trees with the smell of lavender.
