Everyone needs a happy place, somewhere to go and instantly feel better. Azalea Garden by Patrick Heron is one of mine. I adore this painting and am lucky enough to be able to gaze upon its colourful beauty regularly. It is on display at Tate Britain, a short hop across the river from where I work.
After a testing morning at work, gazing into the Azalea Garden, breathing in the colours and losing myself in the determined brushstrokes, I feel my heart rate return to normal and a sense of calm is restored
This is picture I would love to have on my wall at home – although I can’t do that I can have the postcard. I bought it from the Tate shop and it is now on my desk providing a lovely aesthetic diversion to all my days.
Where is your happy place?
