Painting Number 4 ~ Two Vases of Flowers with fluffly Curtain

Love this one. It's two vases of flowers and some fluffy pink drapes as seen from outside. This is made just to hang as a gift to yourself or a friend. I think it would look nice either over a bedside table, in a restaurant or over a lamp next to a sofa. Also, I would love to look at this painting in my office to cheer my spirit.

Julie, I love your paintings, but I don’t know much about art. Me neither! I just like pretty pictures. There’s really not too much of a mystery to it. You just put a nail on a wall then hang the picture and enjoy.

Where do you think your painting would look good? I think these would look cute just about anywhere. You could hang it in your living room, bedroom or even kitchen.

What I would love to do is give one to a friend who isn’t well to cheer her up.

That’s why I particularly like flowers. I think these would look great in a restaurant, lobby, doctor’s office or hallway. Where do you think these pictures could be shown? My mom says in an art gallery or restaurant. She says I need to organize an exhibit.  I agree.

Thank you for visiting and participating. Good luck.

    Great idea for blogging and great give away…..my step daughter is furnishing a new apt and the flowers and coffee would really work well.

    Keep blogging and thank you for being you.

    Love and Light

  4. I love Flowers and Hot Coffee for a Friend. Last November I started to take lessons in watercolors and, although I have much to learn, it has been a rewarding experience.

    I am in awe when I see work such as yours and would love to own one of your paintings.

  5. Hey sweetie, I just got home and thought I would make sure your comment issue was resolved and VOILA! It is!!!

    You know what I like 🙂

  6. Hi Julie! I adore all four of these but the one that catches my attention most is #2, floating roses. Gives me a whimsical fun loving feel, makes me happy when I look at it.♥

  7. These are lovely. I particularly love #4. Now, I’m off to “like” on FB. Thanks so much for the chance to win a painting. (I was sent here by Michelle of Bleeding Espresso).



  8. They’re all beautiful! Number 4 would look great in my living room though!

  9. Oh! Oh! I am so excited at the prospect of owning one of your paintings. They are all s wonderful that I am having a hard time choosing! I will have to think on it. Decisions, decisions! They are all just beautiful!

  10. Great showing Julie!
    I love them all but I have to say that #3 and #4 are my favorites. I love the composition of Flowers and Hot Coffee for a Friend, but something about the rich vibrant colors and whimsy of Two Vases of Flowers with Fluffy Curtain just sings to me.
    Thanks for sharing!!

  11. Woe is me. I would have loved to have any one of your paintings adorn my walls here in far distant New Zealand. Then you would instantly become WORLD FAMOUS. But I didn’t read your post in time so maybe I will get lucky another time.

  12. I wouldn’t be so greedy as to accept another painting from you if I were to win again, but I *would* willingly gift the one with the coffee mug to someone if I were so lucky 😀 LOVELY work once again carissima xx

  13. I keep vacillating between 3 and 4 as they both draw me in, but I would have to say #3 as I look at it and have a moment of serenity, that I could be sitting there, sipping that coffee and smelling those flowers. So, if you could please put my name in the hat for #3, that would be most appreciated! I know right where I would put it!

  14. And the winner is!

    Pat. Congratulations.

    She will be receiving her painting in the mail in the coming days.

    Thank you all for playing. We so appreciate your comments and your support.


  15. isn’t it wonderful being an artist and loving your work. Each creation is like giving birth. So wonderful.

  16. Usually I don’t read post on blogs, but I would like to say that this write-up very compelled me to check out and do it! Your writing taste has been surprised me. Thanks, very nice article.

    1. That’s great news. Good luck with your blogging journey. I can highly recommend using wordpress as your blogging platform for their great support, people and themes.
