Been gone back soon


Bogged down by admin/self promotion/new card designing/website updating/general gooey boring stuff which takes forever and I haven't picked up a paintbrush in two weeks. Back next week if I haven't choked on paperwork, virtual or otherwise. Meanwhile check out Eric Orchard's blog, my site of the week - simply fabulous, top quality work, my new favourite illustrator and enjoy my lovely weekend sunflowers, suitably bright but autumnal.

Wow! Thank you so much! I just ordered Pinwheel Days and I can't wait to get it.Is Cotswolds as beautiful as people say?

Hi Eric, yes, it is absolutely lovely! Not every single part of it, it has its rundown estates and suburbs, but the actual countryside where we live is an official area of Outstanding Natural Beauty, (which should mean it gets some protection but in fact the government tend to ride roughshod over these things if they want to put new houses or a motorway somewhere). But yes, in general, it is stuffed with olde worlde cottages, lush sprawling fields, sheep and cows grazing peacefully, woodlands, amazing views and enough picturesqueness to grace any chocolate box!

Thank you so much for buying Pinwheel - I am afraid the paper and reproduction have spoiled it a bit, the colours are more washed out than the originals and the paper stock is weird shiny stuff...but hey, it is still my first born!

Such a perfect image, Gretel (if I may point this out to an artist, pardon me). Everything there seem to take on this autumnal rosy hue of a still young fall.
I wish you a good week, may everything come easy to you.

Sorry your bogged down with so much stuff. I suppose being a professional artist has its draw backs as well as it's pro's. Take care ... Love Julia x

Does this mean you're planning some more goody xmas cards this year?
I wait with anticipation ...no pressure though!

Gretel-

An eye for talent- although you don't tout yours enough (my little opinion)- but, planting seed for the future and putting postive energy into good things!
