John Dyer

Original Painting by John Dyer. Gardening and Growing. Kim Wilde's garden.

Sunflowers, espalier apple trees, rose arches & climbing beans are all set against the warm red and purple colours of Kim Wilde's beautiful barn conversion. Kim's husband Hal and her children Rose and Harry can be seen alongside Kim as they enjoy the family garden together. Featured in the new book about John Dyer & retrospective exhibition.

A glorious week of painting in Kim Wilde's garden in Hertfordshire with her family resulted in this spectacular painting by John Dyer.

"You have not only perfected your own life-affirming art but more importantly I can clearly see you have perfected the art of living!" Kim Wilde 2018
