Is Nunnie's Garden a Real Place?
This is a painting of a serene garden in which my Grandmother, Nunnie, would meditate at the stone altar in the green grove on a mountain in the Catskills New York State. It was in a hidden place, on the grounds of Wanderwalk, my Great Grandmother's house. You had to walk down a narrow dirt and stone path to reach it and it would just open up, unexpectedly, onto this lovely place. It was also known as "The Sanctum", and on the stone pillar was a sundial, which I am lucky enough to still have in my garden! When I was a child, I always felt the path was a portal, and I had reached an enchanted land whenever I came to it!
