Upcoming Exhibition & Book Launch
In pastels and poetry, Grief's Dark Seed and Hope's Blossom charts Trish Findlater’s emergence from paralysing grief following the death of her beloved husband, Alex.
Trish found solace in the beautiful garden she and Alex created in the grounds of their home, Gleninna House, in County Mayo. Painting the garden in all its seasons – stark winter, exuberant spring, the stately glory of summer and the inevitable decay of autumn – helped her to rediscover the joie de vivre she had shared with her husband.
This book is a tribute to his passionate joy in the cycle of life and death which is at the core of gardening, and at the core of all our lives. It is a moving testimony to grieving and the resurgence of believing in life.
