Secret Garden


Oil on deep edged canvas 31.5 x 31.5in (80 x 80 x 4cm)

Secret Garden is a portrayal of an enigmatic woman surrounded by a lush and vibrant garden of roses. The painting depicts a serene and contemplative female figure, with long, dark hair cascading over her shoulder and blending into a shawl of deep, vibrant blue. In the background, a mysterious landscape with green fields and an ominous Abbey ruin under a dynamic sky sets the stage for this dreamy and enchanting scene. The foreground is rich with a garden of roses in a variety of colours, creating a tapestry of floral beauty at the bottom of the composition, celebrating the existence and importance of a person's private world and psyche. There are hints to the remnants of a feathered wing; perhaps she used to be an angel or a swan. The painting's surface has numerous textures and glazes which add interest and depth to the image. The painting employs a mixture of magical realism and impressionism to create a sense of peacefulness and introspection, inviting viewers to be drawn into the serene world it portrays.

It is painted on a gallery wrapped canvas using artist quality oil paints and metallic pigments. The painting continues around the sides of the canvas and it comes with appropriate fixings ready to hang straight onto your wall.
