This has taken forever…
There are still minor adjustments to make.
Also…
I would like to extend a big thank to Rory Stapleton (after discovering our mutal love of the works of Australian Artist Norman Lindsay) for his help and encouragement during the last couple of weeks while I worked on this furiously.
His supportive emails, as he followed its progress and imparting his technical expertise in illustration and painting was much appreciated.
Thank you so much Rory.
Please take a moment to visit Rory and his exceptional works HERE

I have been posting pictures of its progress all week

My Inspiration
Here at my home, in my
“Upstairs Garden”

I have a large stone plaque with a face cast into it, which hangs on the western wall of the house,
catching the last rays of sun each day. He is the protector of my Upstairs Garden

Although there is no beautiful young naked maiden standing there in front of his gargoyle-like face, safely flaunting herself before his lifeless eyes…

I have nevertheless called him my
“Garden God”
in homage to Lindsay and his work.

The Garden God

    Oh Patricia! I remember seeing this in progress on your blog….it’s a very profound piece and would look superb in a very large format, no frame, just on canvas. I absolutely love it.

  • Steph… so nice of you to have seen the WIP i started so long ago on the blog and on RB, also i always welcome suggestions.
    Thank you for your continued support.

    Being English, I hadn’t heard of Norman Lindsay, but I have checked him out. Thanks for making me aware of his work.

  • BLYTHEART…Hi Dave, thanks for following the WIP and glad my GGII resulted in you having a look at the works of Norman Lindsaythank you for the comments in your journal Learning From Each Other On RedBubble…“I am as interested in art history as I am in drawing in painting … sometimes even more so. I only just learned about Norman Lindsay and his work today, through reading something written by Perugina on Redbubble. I love it when that happens…” Read more
    Also, I hope your exhibition at the local hospital in Blyth went well.
    Thanks for visiting.
