The picture above taken from The Flower Book by Edward Burne-Jones (1833–1898) is a series of 38 round watercolours, each about six inches across. Designs in the “Flower Book” are a fantasy on the popular name, rather than the actual appearance of the flower. According to Wikipedia, in a letter he wrote, “I want the name and the picture to be one soul together, and indissoluble, as if they could not exist apart; so many lovely names and nothing to be done with them.[4]” 


So many lovely names and nothing to be done with them

Jayne is a writer. On her free time she likes to be with her family hiking outdoors and traveling. New England is her home and place of birth. When asked what she wants to teach the world she replied, "Don't stop searching. Too many times, in my old life, I put my search aside for more 'important matters.' I didn't realize the thing I was searching for held what was most important; my soul purpose." Jayne works daily improving her craft and at times can get down on herself, but her favorite morning mantra is "It's a new day." and that's what she strives to start with.
