I LOVE the style in this Julie - it's definately got 'style'... almost 1950s, but not quite. Really like this, it's 'art' and very different and quite unique. My favourite is the Iris... I hope your tutor see's how stylish this is and appreciates how hard it is to be that unique whilst being accurate at the same time. Well done!

Well done Julie, you have definitely left your stamp on it and what a striking stamp it is! I really love the whole composition and the colours in these pages ... just wonderful, congratulations

Thank you Jess; i have been told from other artists that my work does have a design quality and very different from the traditional botanical artwork. I have tried to be more botanical; however i always finish with this unique style!! My tutor was born in 1936 (i think) So not sure what she is going to think of my work! But hey we are in the modern world and we have to move on!! Thank you Vicki; i like to put part of me into my work for sure :) xoxox

Testing Testing one two three... (Julie I am trying to work out what is happening to Google). maybe have another go?

Jessica Rosemary Shepherd said...

Seems to be working ok for me. Maybe check your settings? It could be sorted now - just a glitch on google's front? Also - make sure your profile in the thin box below this one is set up as Julie Whelan (Google) not as 'Anonymous'...
