Whatever the time of year there is always inspiration in the garden for the artist and the gardener. There is always something to be learned, new things to observe and appreciate. The artist and gardener alike must develop the composition, bringing ideas and planning together. Sue Goodchild has combined her love of painting with her love of gardens to produce this book as a tribute to her sister Mag. Mag was an enthusiastic and talented gardener; and following her untimely death Sue set out to capture the beauty of the plants and flowers her sister loved so much. Each flower is discussed from the points of view of both the gardener and the artist, and the text is illustrated with stunning paintings full of beauty and character, and glowing with light.
