Garden Room

I took this picture on a fine spring day while visiting Hidcote Manor Garden in the English Cotwolds. Our surprise and delight in approaching the massive green hedge, and finding a doorway into another garden "room" are something that has stayed with me. Hidcote was built as a series of "rooms". Some are entered through an arch or a doorway, while paths and enclosures of trees lead to others. Layers make our artwork more interesting. Layers can partly obscure an image, create a sense of depth or tantalize with a small, more focused glimpse of something important.
