This is beautiful...I agree with the "botanical illustrations..." Makes me feel like I can reach out and pick them and pop 'em in a vase :)

Really beautiful!!! Do you do textbook illustrations? If not , that is a possible revenue generator for you. Thanks

I love bright flowers!!!

You've done an admirable job. Makes me want to see your garden. If it is half as beautiful as your wc it must be great to spend time there.

Looking forward to more....

Thanks everyone for all your nice comments, they are really appreciated.
Reye - No i don't do botanical illustrations never been asked, in fact the only illustrations i have done are for six children's books, 5 of which i wrote and illustrated the other was written by my daughter and i illustrated that one too. They are all on Watchfull's own site. (cgi-assoc.com) They have been there now for some time. If you get a chance go see them. Thanks also for the suggestion of illustrator. Maybe one day i will be asked, that would be so nice.
Studio 224 i am pleased you like my flowers. The truth is i am trying all sorts of subjects to see what i like best and what likes me best. I do love doing flowers and maybe that is what i should stick to, we will see.
Thanks again everyone and take care.

Hey you are famous and I apologize for not knowing. That is an interesting background but I do think that , if you wanted to, you could illustrate for science books, etc - all those types of courses are on cd today too, so there is opportunity there. Britain has such beautiful countrysides with flowers. Lots of inspiration there!
Anyway I like your work :clap:
