A wonderful jewel like quality. I love it!!

Lovely, great variety of colours and very detailed

Thank you Cas, I saw this flower border in mid September and was really impressed by how fresh and lively the flowers were - it was a lovely excuse to use lots of colour! Thank you for your fantastic compliment :)

Thank you David, full credit to the gardener for planting such a colourful and interesting range of flowers! I really enjoyed the challenge of painting small but getting everything in. Thank you for taking the time to post such a lovely comment.

Thank you Margaret :) Sometimes it is nice just to do something a little different. It's on the small side plus it was painted mainly with a painting knife to stop me getting too detailly (is that a word?) Glad you like it! Thank you for telling me :)

Thank you Carole, lovely to hear from you again :) Very kind of you to visit! :) :)

There is so much in this for such as small painting!

Thank you Linda! It is the fourth postcard-sized painting I have painted this year - but it is definitely the one with the most crammed in! There's no underdrawing, so I was really pleased (and relieved!) to reach the end of the border with all the flowers in their places!! Thank you for your lovely comment :) :)

Wow, Beautiful! :)

Thank you TaiMeng Lim! Lovely to hear from you! :) :)

Thank you for posting this lovely comment Sandra. Very kind of you. :) :) x
