Sunflowers and a Coronado Island Invitation

A Little Love Sunflowers is my newest painting drying on the easel, and I learned this morning that grabbing a wet painting to photograph it is not always a smart idea! I'm a bit distracted, packing and preparing for my solo show on Coronado Island near San Diego, California on Saturday, April 16.

I hope you will join me as I paint in the garden at Art and Frames by Wood Gallery from 11:30 am to 5:30 pm that day. Two of my newest four foot wide container gardens arrived there yesterday, Hummingbird Haven Flower Garden, pictured below, is one of them. Can you spot the ruby throated hummingbird in the painting below? Here's a hint - it's not close to the unhappy pug in the picture.

These new works will join my largest collection of container garden paintings for my solo show at Art and Frames by Wood Gallery, just up the street from the Starbucks on Orange Avenue in the heart of this lovely island! If you are in the San Diego, California, area, please stop by that day and say hello. I would love to see you!

I wish you much success and more fun than ever this year, Nancy. Do you go twice a year? If not, this is my third year of watching you head to Coronado Island. I admit the first time might have been when I first began following your blog. Love the shot of you and AnnieB. The sunflowers, as always, are sheer delight!

Archie and Melissy, I wish you could come, too - what fun we would have! though I'm not sure how much painting I would get done. : )

Thank you Sherry, this is my 3rd year to paint in the garden on Coronado. sending you hugs!

Beautiful sunflowers Nancy! I wish I could come see you in Coronado. I lived there when my boys were small and have many wonderful memories of Sunday brunch at the Hotel Del!
