This painting was done after a visit to the most beautiful and spiritual garden nestled in the hills of Kilternan on the road to Enniskerry near my home in Dublin. It is a tiny place but the power of the spiritual energy I found here inspired me to paint a series of garden landscapes. While I was in Knockrose Garden, I felt that I had come home. I worked here for several months both teaching workshops, painting, and held an exhibition here with my husband (his first) called "Scents of Harmony". The poem that I collaged into the painting is from Rumi.
"The minute I heard my first love story, I started looking for you, not knowing how blind that was. Lovers don't finally meet somewhere, they're in each other all along"
