Many years ago I lived on a farm in Zimbabwe. Returning home at night, I would stop at the entrance of the farm, and look at this scene. The gate was always open and had never been closed.

I decided to paint the scene from memory, but changed the African flowers into some of the common UK flowers. It seems to echo the tranquil scene from my youth.

As I was a little wild, I was sent to boarding school. It was on the site of an old gold mine. Art was part of the curriculum, I loved it. As an Adult I qualified as a teacher and was sent to Chipinga. I started painting backdrops for the plays we did. I spent a lot of time researching and making sketches for the plays.
