Fourteen...Seven to go.

Succulents and stones
Red Hot Pokers
Yellow wall
Painted stones close up
Nursery sign
Fuzzy cactus
Fourteen
These are a couple of photos I took of the cactus nursery we visited last weekend.
It's called Quinta Schmoll and it's located in the town of Cadereyta
in the beautiful state of Queretaro. You can find out more about it here
and see more photos on Flickr by clicking here.
I will paint seven more stones before my shop update
but I wanted to know which one of these is your favorite...
It will be the prize for a little weekend giveaway I want to host this Friday!
Hope you'll help me choose one :)

Beautiful photos! Love the second one down - great contrast between the green spiky bits and the red floral bits! Sorry for the very nonacademic critique ;P I am so excited to see these stones go up in your shop - it's been fun to watch your progress! I am partial to the white outlined bird/butterfly stone and the blue and white butterfly - but they are all fantastic and I can't wait for the giveaway!

Hello Geninne,
I like your ideas very much. Frankly saying I`m impressed how you manage raising two boys, being a housewife, artist, and probably many more;)? I have three kids ( fourth shall be born on 10 Nov:) ) and if I do anything it`s only at night. Simple picture in watercolor I make for a week, would you believe;)? Anyway, let`s go back to the topic. I love birds and I like the one with a bunch in his beak, but I`d choose the one with a colour butterfly, because of unusual deep black colour of the stone contrasting vivid colours of the insect.
With best wishes of lots of inspiration:)

I love your work, but if I had to choose one, which is extremely difficult, I think I'd choose the little yellow bird with the red wing!

I agree with everyone - it's a hard decision to make! But I would say that the white flower stone below the colored butterfly on the right.
Thanks for the opportunity.

Ciao!

Hi! The one that quickly cathed my eyes was the cactus seen from the top. It reminded me of the cactus nursery in the pictures you shared! Love the beautiful details it has.
Thanks for sharing!

It's so hard to chose, but I keep going back to the dark oval butterfly near the bottom. They are all breath taking.

All of them are genius! I would pick the yellow/red bird because to me it is quintessentially "Geninne"! Just received the Drawing Lab book and can't wait to go through it :D

Wow! They are all so amazing.

I adore the butterflies, the black one, the one on the top row, the one in the center and also the white line drawing....clearly I can't pick just one favorite.

They are beautiful!!

My favorite stone is the black on with the black butterfly! Lovely!

Thanks for the photos of the cactus garden too. I grew up in Phoenix Arizona and now live in the Chicago area, so I miss all the desert plants and the beauty of the unusual kinds of cactus. Fun!

I love the white birds.... the contrast between the dark stone and the crisp white lines makes the design really stand out.

Imagine that the paths around your neighborhood would be paved with stones like these... you'd spend all of your days there...

I love these stones---I like to collect smooth flat ones myself. I especially like the white line drawings you've done. My favorite? So hard to choose, but the red-winged orange bird utterly charms me.

They are all exquisite. If I were forced to choose, it would be one of the butterflies. Which one? Ah, that I can't decide.

Dear Geninne,

It is to lovely to read that everyone has a different favorite ....... Not so suprising actually, because they are all beautifull.
Really hard to choose......I like them all, but especially the ones with the birds ....... and if I had to pick one of them it will be the yellow/red bird ..... or the one with the bird and butterfly ..... can't choose.


Kind regards, Marije Brussee

Well, I'm in the minority for sure, but I can't go past that irridescent green beetle. It's tropical colour I miss so much in these temperate climes! That said, they're all beautiful and I hope they are as much fun to create as they are to look at!

I really struggled picking a favourite. Is it the cactus? Yes. Is it the bird and butterfly? Yes. Do I love the bird with the swooshy tail? Yes. Oh Geninne.....making us pick is so mean ;) For me, its always going to be your signature bird. The one with the butterfly.

Your inbox must be brimming with all these comments...so popular! Bella x

I am also wishing that I dont have to choose one to be the favorite as they are all so lovely - the yellow butterfly and the weeds with dragonfly might be my favorites....maybe....all are beautiful.

Everything you do is a favourite of mine. You don't make it easy to choose, but if choose I must, it would be the butterfly on the right, top row. I am hoping to be able to purchase some of these from your shop. Previously I have always missed out! I shall keep my eyes peeled!

Mi favorita es la piedra que tiene la mariposa negra, por que es la más distinta a las demás, la piedra es más oscura y se ve maravillosa con esa mariposa, con colores contrastantes, me recuerda que todo en la naturaleza tiene contrastes y que los colores oscuros son bellísimos también.

Picking a favorite is like picking a favorite child. But my eye continues to be drawn to the green beetle on the bottom row. They are all stunning, though.

They are all so fabulous! How can i choose just one?! well.. eventhough i love the colored butterflies my favortie has to be the slim one in white. With the long elegant flower and the little butterflie on the side.

I think that I like the pure white ones on the black stone the best - very tactile. Then if I had to choose one of these it would be the large open flower on the second row from the top.

My favorite is easily (not too easily since they are all precious) the bird with his tail curled under him holding a leaf in his beak. I would love to have a stamp cut to that pattern for personal stationary. So charming! I like how he fills the space of the round stone.
