My greatest influence.......

I have been asked many times what has influenced me in my garden making..the main influence of course is life itself but this early Australian Colonial painting has always lurked in my sub-consciousness! More than once garden visitors have mentioned this painting after viewing my garden and interestingly they were older women who made these observations... I must endeavor to see the original one day!

  1. That actually makes sense to me - older women, too!

  2. It's food for thought. I have a new garden in hand and have been looking at photographs of other gardens for ideas with no joy. It suddenly occurs to me as the completely wrong place to look.

  3. The 'influence' is the 'spirit' of the painting..nothing more and nothing less. There ain't too much spirit in many 'modern' gardens now is there...
