A Scottish Country Garden

I've had Bridget's card, my last one of this exchange, propped up on my mantelpiece for a week or more, to gaze at and enjoy - and think of what I could say about it that it doesn't eloquently say for itself. Gorgeous rich colour, expressive and varied marks that describe her winter garden so vividly - the dormant stalks, withered leaves and brave new snowdrops in the muted, wild looking landscape. I absolutely love my little piece of Scotland, and of the painterly way it's presented - apparently casual yet so masterful! Thank you Bridget - hope that back is well on its way to recovery so you can get to zumba and walking again - though you clearly don't need to go very far to produce wonderful work.

I love your marks and the freedom with which you paint Bridget - and your use of colour.

A lovely card

Gorgeous colours and mark-making as always!

Everyone of Bridget's paintings for this exchange has been a gem. The palette is always so beautiful and distinctive. I can't bring myself to call these little gems postcards. Every one has been received with obvious delight.
