Hello Margaret
Thanks for stopping by my blog and for your kind comments. The painting of the conservatory is actually the Palm House in the Botanic Gardens in Belfast.
I really like your blog your flower work is lovely I like doing flowers too. I'll stop by again.

Another winner, Margaret. We are just beginning to have a number of butterflies around. The ferns, expecially in the color version are soft and lovely. I am always amazed by your careful, detailed work.

Beautiful flutters! I love how your zentangles get into your art. I'm guessing you did the reverse color thing on photoshop.

those are so gorgeous - the butterflies feel like they are dressed up to go out!

Thanks you all for your bright and cheery comments...smile of happiness all around to each of you!

Yes, Teri...the negative-reverse color thing...was instantly created by a mouse click on my computer photo program...I thought it gave a funky instant night time look to the post! :)

Hi Margaret Ann - thank you for your lovely comments on my journal - I am sadly back from the mountains, but feeling renewed and refreshed and even the aggressive New Jersey traffic from the airport to home didn't freak me out; well, not so much as it would have.
I had my Eat, Love, Pray retreat and now it is back to life, but I hope to add more insight into the daily routine and not forget those lessons. Now to laundry and dishes!

I have got to try this technique some day...the black and white patterns. Beautiful.
thanks for your great comments.
