Summer Song

Summer Song
24X24
Oil on Canvas
SOLD

This was my first time to paint red gladiolas and these flowers were incredibly fun to create! The gladiolas are based on a photo I took at the Coronado Island Flower Festival this past spring (you remember, the one I got kicked out of because I wasn't a judge or juror?) Three little pears from the grocery store sitting on my workstation also helped with this project, although one of the three mysteriously disappeared overnight. Perhaps it fled to a safe harbor for pears somewhere. And no painting is completed at Flower Mound Studio without the assistance of the three four-footed assistants who strategically select napping accommodations directly in front of the easel.

Summer feels like it is slipping away already, even here in Texas. Where does the time go? I hope you are enjoying a relaxing Saturday with loved ones nearby and all of your pears safely accounted for....

What a gorgeous painting! I suspect one of your four footed friends may be responsible for the pearnapping, yes? I did glads a year ago for a birthday postcard. They definitely do not stand up to yours!

Summer is also slipping away here. Cool and crisp this morning.... a glimpse of fall.

hi nancy!
oh it is gorgeous!
i love it!
hmmm... i wonder if the puggy assistants formed a pug pyramid and grabbed one of those pears to share?
yummy!

Nancy Medina said...

I think the puggy pyramid pear snatching trio is a definite possibility Sherlock! I mean Melissa! ; )
Thank you for such kind remarks ladies, bright flowers always make me feel wonderful, and I love fall. What a great time of year to paint.
many hugs from the and the puggies!

Nancy, I just wanted to thank you for signing on to follow my blog. I approved your comment but for some reason it isn't showing up. I even got the second email telling me it was published! I do not know where it is, however, as I cannot see it! A glitch in blogspot, maybe? Sigh...
