I spent great swathes of my time last year ensconced in the gardens at Great Dixter and this exhibition begins with the final painting from that series aptly titled 'Deep in the Garden'. This year I have travelled around the country starting at the most westerly end of Cornwall and ending, via the Cotswolds, in Edinburgh’s Botanical Garden. Each stage of this voyage had been punctuated with forays back into Dixter and while the show is about the journey, the punctuation is supplied by Great Dixter.

The Cornish gardens draw you in and bowl you over. The subtropical valleys of the south lead you under its canopy to emerge in a secluded beach or in front of a wonderful view. In the Cotswolds I revisited Rosemary Verey’s gardens and a few tucked away gems. The old palm house at Edinburgh was closed for repair but I had already enjoyed the unchained palms of Cornwall and the rest of the Botanical Garden was a pleasure.

And as I sit here late in the late afternoon of another glorious day cradling a glass of Pinot Noir I consider the paintings I might produce of our own garden as it reaches to the skies.

Additional exhibitions and preview images will be added as more information becomes available. Watch this space
