    1. Hello Joan - thanks for a really nice comment. I work at getting the tones right so it it means a lot that you noticed.
      Same goes for the beautiful light you captured in your Sand Dunes. Beautiful painting!

  2. What a lovely painting Julie! When I first started painting my grandson noticed that I painted all pink flowers. There's just "something" about pink. They are precious. Enjoy your day.

    1. Thanks Carol.
      Is that the same grandson which plays the piano? He is very observant to notice something like that. Can he draw and paint too?
      Hope you can clean the old bottles. If anyone reading this knows how to remove the cloudy coatings from old bottles please go to Carol's blog and pass it on.

    1. Hi Carol - Yes - you are right - I certainly do have thoughtful friends. I only know nice people. I sort of stay away from the other types. I bet you are the same way. Thanks as always for the visit, my friend.

  8. What a lovely rose painting. It's filled with wonderfully subtle pinks; no powder hues or bubble gum here! You paint such a variety of subjects so very well, Julie. Florals have always seemed daunting to me, but your work always inspires me to explore new realms. I am working on a couple of paintings, but hope to post a smaller piece soon. (The goldfinches have arrived in force now, and keep our feeders busy!)

    1. Thanks for the nice words but I paint soft things easier than hard edged things. It is the struggle I like most of all so thats why I move around in subject matter. The beauty of having a blog is I can paint what I want for myself. Don't you agree? it is freedom. I know there are things I would never dream of offering the gallery.
      Lucky you getting the goldfinches. I don't mind when I know they will return but would love to see the babies. I am waiting for the quail babies...cutest things ever!
      Looking forward to seeing your new painting.

  14. I am lucky and I know it. I enjoyed seeing your barn. Even though we are a farming community in this valley we do not have barns quite like that. We do have gin mills for the cotton though,
