Although these scenes from Cookham are just a few of the hundreds of paintings and murals Spencer produced during his exceptionally long and productive career, many of which are far more important in an overall appraisal of his life's work; I can't help but admire most his many local garden scenes so lovingly rendered during these years. Spencer's From the Artist's Studio (below), from 1938, is probably my favorite, though his Flowers in a Window, Cookham (bottom), also from 1938, would run it a very close second.

It's hard to believe the same artist painted this
as painted all the works seen above.
