Great fun with these lovely ladies and lots of flowers yesterday during my watercolor workshop @la_finca_cambutal
💗 We all had a good time, can you tell?! 😁🌼🌸🌺😃
Managing a few new paintings this week before Christmas mayhem! I love all winter foliage, especially eucalyptus. 🌱
Pressed Forget me not flowers✨💛 For her second tattoo a special one. Flowers from her mother’s garden. Thanks Verena again all the way from Germany😙
About to bundle up and head to the @nyc_flowermarket
- which is one of my favorite things - and even that is getting increasingly more difficult as the days get colder and shorter. Anyone else struggle a bit this time of year? What are some things that help you adjust?
Heyhey 🌟 „Big Roses“ in S/M/L 🌹🌹🌹 sie eignen sich perfekt dafür, große Flächen damit zu schmücken bzw um Bouquets aufzufüllen und Volumen zu gewinnen. Aber auch als Bündel in einer großen Vase machen sie ganz schön was her 💥❤️ Entworfen hab ich sie damals für die Hochzeitsauslage für Demel @demel_wien
, vielleicht könnt ihr euch noch daran erinnern? Damals war Jakob noch bei mir im Bauch und ich hab mich grad ganz genau an dieses Gefühl, die Zeit, meine Gedanken und meine Gefühle erinnern können 💖 vieles davon hat sich verändert und vieles ist so ganz anders, als ich mir es vorgestellt hab. Und das ist auch gar nicht schlimm. Auch wenn ich dachte es wäre leichter mit zweien, dass ich weiter arbeiten werde können, aus der anfänglichen tollen Herausforderung irgendwann Überforderung wurde. So schön ist es auch, dass ich meinen Bub noch viel mehr mag, als ich mir das je vorstellen konnte. Manchmal hatte ich Angst, dass ich nicht noch jemanden so lieb haben kann wie mein Mädchen. Aber vom ersten Moment an war da diese unglaubliche Liebe 💖 und die hat sich einfach nur verdoppelt. Ich mag jeden auf eigene Art und Weise. Niemanden mehr und niemanden weniger. Und wenn ich nun endlich meinen Blumenbabys auch wieder mehr Zeit widmen kann, bin ich eine superhappy Jule 🌸🤗💖 (Werbung/Namensnennung/unaufgefordert) #julesblumen #paperflowers #paperflorist #madetoorder #bloooms #instablooms #underthefloralspell #madetocreate #handmade #marthaweddings #weddingflowers #weddinginspo #pursuepretty #thehappynow #paperartist #botanicalart #whimsicalflowers #kleinerfeinerfeed #supportsmall

Flower set 🌼🌿
I love this one for a little cowgirls bedroom. I’ll have it ready for prints soon. Oh, and the original will be @thefoundcottage
“Holy Spirit” is off to the printing company to get scanned so that i can have prints made. I’ll be getting a canvas stretched for this space, but until then, i put “ Pearl” back. I thought i would share a shot of this entire vignette for #cottonstemheartstexture
The church is finished. Keep swiping to see detailed photos as well as the process of this piece. ..................................
The church is a Carpenter Gothic or Gothic Revival style built in 1872 in Port Henry New York. It’s an Episcopal Church. If there ever was a church to represent Hollihocks; this is it. I fell in love when i saw it. The care that went into every detail of this little church astounds me. The dentil molding, corbels, and stained glass are gorgeous. I can hear the bell ringing.
As much as i love the church in this piece, the story is in the flowers. They represent the work of the Holy Spirit in our lives. Before i knew Jesus, it would whisper words of affirmation and encouragement. The Bible talks about receiving the Spirit once we accept the Gospel, but i can see it’s work in my life long before i was a believer. Now, even though i continue to sin, and I’m constantly trying to stray from the path God has set before me; the Spirit is there to lovingly guide me back to Jesus.
Pretty jealous of Pearl for getting to spend all of her time in a bathroom like this. @little.byrd.house
Foxgloves and Hummingbirds
I tried out this big 36x36 printed canvas of Pearl because i thought my mirror was a bit too small for this wall. I think i was right. This fits so much better. Too bad this ones going to @thefoundcottage
I wanted plants on this wall so i put up these sconces and i have grow lights in them. They look great and keep my plants happy here.
Hollyhocks and Honey Bees 🐝 ***SOLD***
Number two in my flowers and flyers series. Photographing these large black and whites is tough. All of the detail gets lost. You can check out my stories for close up videos and the process. Today is World Bee Day. We need to make changes so these tiny gifts from God don’t disappear forever.
White Butterflies and Caterpillars

I can’t tell you how much I love @simplyciani
‘s feed. I especially like what she has to say about Pearl. It was my intent when i partnered with Hobby Lobby to make my pieces more affordable for you. I’m very proud that there’s a piece of me in your homes. Did you know that while i was repainting pieces for Hobby Lobby, i prayed over them. I prayed for each and every one of you. Thank you all for letting my work grace your home. Blessings, always. 😘
Pearl as a paper print. I love how she looks with a black frame.
Brought back the flower trucks with the wood side and dropped a couple off to @thefoundcottage
. I had scans made for prints this week. Prints will be available soon when the website launches.
Nothings better than flowers and rust. Check out my stories to watch me paint this today.
Pearl has officially been spotted @hobbylobby
stores. If you buy her for your home, i would love to be tagged in a photo!!!! ****it is not at all HL locations yet. It depends on your store.
I have a few commissioned pieces that i have to do this week, but I’ve had a pretty big break. So, today i worked on a couple bunny paintings so that i could train my brain to paint again after so much time off. I’ll be bringing this little Easter Bunny to @thefoundcottage
very soon. I have a few videos in my stories of the process.
HAVE YOU HEARD?
I’m giving away tons of FREE stuff. See my post a few back to enter.
I’ve been getting some incredibly sweet, inspiring, and heart wrenching stories. I quickly realized i have an almost impossible task ahead in picking a winner. I’m going to pray about it. A LOT! Thank you all for your comments and messages. I owe everything to you all.
Hydrangeas close up. I love the simplicity of this one. It is currently hanging in my living room. This is the only painting I’ve ever done that i might actually leave up in my home. I’m so critical of myself that i can’t seem to hang my own work without driving myself crazy.
I wanted to show you a closeup of this one. It has so many great layers of texture. Oh, and I’ve chosen a name. “God Bless Ewe”
I’m not sure if this is completely finished just yet, and it needs a name. Any suggestions?? You can see part of the process in my Insta stories.
Well it’s February. This is the month. You can find Pearl the Cow at Hobby Lobby stores soon. I’ve been working with them on lots of other pieces that will be available in the coming months. Be on the lookout. I’ll let you know soon what other pieces will be available, and when. Let me know if you spot her!!
This bouquet of hydrangeas is making its way to @thefoundcottage
too. They’ll go on being this beautiful forever. Unlike the real thing.
It’s good to be back after a break. I was feeling burned out. I had to put the brush down to think. I painted this for my friend @mustardseedbeginnings
she has a love for barns and hydrangeas.
The “I-just-washed-her-for-church” flower farm truck. 😉🤣
Sweet little Poppy is available on canvas or paper prints. Just click the link in my bio on Instagram
Pearl the Cow. I've been wanting to do this full version for way too long. I finally had an amazing reason to work on it. I can't tell you why yet 😏
This is one of my favorite pieces ever. It's now available in prints. Canvases are available on Etsy and they ship free with the code THANKYOU
Last of the baby farm animal series for now.
Baby Farm animal number 3:
Next in my baby farm animal series:
Grace the lamb. It sure is convenient that my friend @lizmariegalvan
has a lamb when I had plans to paint one.
1st in a series of baby farm animals.
