Where to begin…. Oh, I know:

The Crimson Rambler, by Philip Leslie Hale

The Crimson Rambler, 1908, by Philip Leslie Hale  (Hale is a man with interesting family connections – see the link provided above.)

This is the cover illustration for the book accompanying an exhibition entitled The Artist’s Garden:


I just got this book three days ago from Amazon – same day delivery! – and have spent much time since then lost in the beauty of this image.

More to come.

    I was fortunate to be able to see the exhibit at Reynolda House in Winston-Salem NC. How wonderful it was. As I look thru the book I can visualize the actual paintings. There is no question “The Artist’s Garden” is a book to have and love, to page thru and read. A perfect addition to one’s library!

      Thanks for this, Peter. I would love to have seen that exhibit. The book is beautiful.
