This original oil painting is one in 24 (thus far) of Roxy's Cotswold Collection. The Cotswolds is an area of outstanding beauty in England. This cluster of villages hosts an array of medieval cottages built with local stone which gives them a golden sheen. Roxy was so enamored with them that she painted an entire collection from her travels. She first read of the area in M. C. Beaton's Agatha Raisin series which is now a television series. Roxy first went in Winter (December 2012) and a couple of years later in late Summer. The first 12 in the collection were completed in Oil on Arches Oil Paper and took five years to paint.  They were featured in Roxy's Solo Exhibit at the Porto Vista Hotel in San Diego.  She has since been several times and has added to the collection.  Her travels prompted her to learn painting in Watercolor so that she could paint on location while abroad. A few of her newest in the collection are in watercolor.

This particular painting is from Chipping Campden.  There are many beautifully sculptured gardens and thatched cottages.  There is also more than one "April Cottage" in the Cotswolds and Roxy is unsure if that is actually the correct name for this cottage, but it remains the name of the painting.  She took thousands of photos on her many trips and while traveling, found it difficult to document the precise location of each photograph.  She discovers upon her return by researching where the photo was taken.

In each Cotswold painting, Roxy focused on one element of the Cotswolds.  In this painting, it was the garden pathway with its carefully sculpted flowers and plants. The front garden is the thing in England!

The Cotswold Collection is Roxy's prized possession. She takes great pride in the completion of the series.
