The top painting was produced on location at Tomsallagh in County Wexford in mid June. The lower two paintings were produced on location at Kilmokea Gardens, also in County Wexford, Ireland. These gardens are a painters delight presenting a mix of formal clipped hedging with a cottage garden feel in a series of enclosures. The gardens at Kimokea were started in 1947 around the pretty georgian house overlooking the river Barrow and have been gradually extended while retaining the original character and charm. The gardens are open to the public. To see further blog posts on painting in gardens follow the links here to: Painted GardensSummer in the Garden 09
