Red Poppy Panorama

Red Poppy Panorama
Oil on Gallery Wrap Canvas

With the wind chill in the 20s outdoors, the time seemed right to fill the studio with some warm red poppies. It's been a busy week of art in Flower Mound Studio. I finished the sketches for a new commission of two energetic black pugs and a large four-foot container garden was packaged for its trip to Art and Frames by Wood Gallery in Coronado, CA.

Saturday Anniebelly Bossybritches will ride with me out to the farm in East Texas to reacquaint ourselves with the family and then we head back to Flower Mound with my 17 year old niece. I can't think of a better way to spend the holidays than with family. What are your holiday plans? Travel, painting, or just relaxing at home with a glass of cold egg nog?

Howie gets his red on
for the holidays.

Howard looks to be questioning mommy's wisdom a bit! LOL I am so happy to amongst Howard's kept ladies! LOLOL Love the poppies, Nancy. I kept thinking, " they'll sleep" (a la Wizard of Oz) when I saw them. Just beautiful colors and such vibrant life! Perfect for the season and for this time of year!

You should have been here for all the poppies Nancy - but they didn't look as good as yours in this painting!

Howie is gorgeous!

There are no words that can describe the beauty in the Red Poppys. No words at all-well maybe splendorious.
And seeing little pug faces just makes us want to kiss those little faces

Miss Nancy,

I just got your sweet Christmas email. I was so thrilled to read that it was the most successful year ever for your art! What an incredible blessing in a year that was so hard for some. It made me smile to read that. You, of all people, are deserving of such success.

Hugs to you and your assistants! Pearl sends her love as well, especially to Howard Pee!! Merry Christmas!!!
