As perhaps one of the greatest fictional places, Eden, has become a metaphor for many a story. In this case, Francesca uses ‘Eden’ as, a place of paradise in which two figures dwell, this time in conversation under the sun. To the right there is a sacred temple and a holy tree. The imagery here is conjured up through a rich mixture of her personal experience of travels to India and the memory of the experience that this brings when she works back in her studio. The paint is heavily laden, sculpted by using a unique mixture of pigments and traditional oil paints.
