Time to share some of my new botanical artworks.

It's been a busy last few months, meeting deadlines and family stuff getting in the way of my studio time! Just back from a short break, having new windows fitted and then my fantastic dad spent 2 weeks with us and decorated both bedrooms, lounge, dining room and kitchen! Everywhere looks clean and fresh and I love my new windows and decor :)

I did manage to do a few paintings prior to the chaos of decorating and building work! It was juggled with a few family issues and we learnt that our family dog of 14 years, Toby, our small Yorkshire Terrier is suffering from kidney disease and a large single liver mass was also found. Despite the findings, he's doing well with a diet change and of course lots of TLC! He's responsive, eating well and free from pain...This is all we can ask for, right now.

Toby our beloved family dog of 14 years ♥
Anyway despite things getting in the way, like I mentioned above, I did manage to do a few paintings over the last few months...© Julie Whelan.

Julie these paintings are stunning - you have shown a great attention to detail, wonderful light and colours - just beautiful. You must be very pleased with them. I do hope Toby is improving - I know he has a happy life with you.
Just wanted to wish you well and send best wishes from Australia.
