Sky Over Garden: My tiny private garden is located right outside the studio window. While sitting in the garden about 3 years ago I experienced myself to be inside the garden and the sky at the same time. Still, as the sky changes and colours the garden with a new wash, my eyes are drawn to the to the window. The memory of that experience has stayed with me and found it’s way into this series of paintings.
