A rampant garden, a postcard from Bridget to Ronelle

Bridget's garden is only three years old, but already so rampant that she suspects something is buried there. I would like to believe there is...wouldn't' that be just a great story!

...a rampant garden.

This is a lovely Bridget piece, with her signature written all over it...beautiful in color and atmosphere and her free spirit and easy going, carefree character is caught up in every stroke.

Few things please me more than experiencing the freedom of expression through either a painting or a drawing, a written piece, a poem, a design, a corner of a home, or even something as simple as a fresh salad...when it comes from the heart, it is honest. True and strong. Exciting. It brings along changes. What more do we want.

Thank you Bridget, for expressing yourself in such a free and spontaneous way. I love my card.

WOW! This is gorgeous! I love paintings of gardens - especially rampant ones - and this is special.

I'm very jealous.

I'm very jealous too! Both of Ronelle having the card and Bridget being able to paint like that.

Fabulous.

Ronelle your post is so discriptive and really shows off this wonderful painting. Bridget, love the image of your gardens richness. Lovely.

I love this (barely) domesticated version of Bridget's triumphant landscape style -- brilliantly described by Ronelle!

Thankyou all for the encouraging comments. I think working in acrylics on thick watercolour paper seems to be the best way for me with these cards.
