I love gardens. This one is in Chester NJ.
Around 14x17
Many many layers of Opens and final touches with heavy body.
Glaze, Glaze Glaze
Cheers, Derek

Re: Path

Hi Derek....another masterpiece!.....I don't know why you try to get loose when you constantly turn out such detailed work like this.....it's you and it's wonderful, so utilize what you have been given and treat all mankind to your fabulous art.....

'blue

by the way, when I lived up there, Chester was always one of my favorite places to visit......

All I can say is that I don't have any Derek's on my wall and that is just horrible.. Love it, so peaceful and you handle light play in the most inviting way, everything about this garden is enchanting and of course brilliantly accomplished...
