Happy New Year..

"Have a very good reason for everything you do."

(Sir Laurence Olivier)

Work in progress..
Final piece
Some of the decisions we make as artists are quite remarkable, it is only when we look back at photograph's (or recordings) of 'work in progress' that we begin to understand/or not, some of the journey's we make. Small adjustments to colour, balance and positioning are so important to who we are, where our mind was at that specific moment in time.

'I had good reason for the decision I made at that specific moment in time'... (Try and explain that to someone who isn't an artist...)

On that thought.. 

I want to wish you all a very 'Happy and Creative New Year' from sunny Cornwall ~ Julie 

Thank you to Heike Gerbig - Gerdiary.blogspot  for the quote.


  1. Very happy wishes to you for a creative, love-filled and healthy 2017 Julie. I'm looking forward to seeing what new creations you have to show us.

    1. Thank you Mary Anne I hope I can come up to your expectations. To let you in on a secret I'm working on a little box of delights at this moment x

    2. No pressure or expectations here - just love your work! Can't wait to see the box of delights.

    3. Box of delights has taken a back burner, working on a couple of paintings using natural pigments... Causing my head to ache hence no photo's yet... Soon...
      Thank you for dropping by to leave me a message Mary Ann x

  2. Wishing you a Happy New Year too.

  3. Happy New Year to you too, Julie. I find I'm doing quite a lot of justifying my actions at the moment and I'm not even an artist!!!!!xxx

    1. Hi Annie, you don't need to justify anything! Happy New Year x
