Diablo Hydrangeas is drying on the easel on a hot, hot day in Flower Mound, Texas. The puggies have been taking extra naps these past few weeks, occasionally joined by their mama, who is wise enough to learn from her assistants every now and then. The heat wave across the nation is worrisome, I sure hope wherever you are, you are safe and cool and indoors and not suffering.

A few summers ago, I took Howard, aka Mister Social, to a pug meetup at a creek in Dallas. Here are some images to help cool things off a bit!

Hi Nancy - love the painting and the watermelons that you are incorporating in your compositions! Hope you are staying cool. I just got back from 10 days visiting my mom and enjoying the Texas heat. Of course, I remember the heat wave of 1980 with 45 days over 100 degrees:)

Wow, the rose velvet background and the trickles of violet near the tips of the flower petals really make this piece pop. Excellent work!

Love the reds in this beauty, Nancy!

Look at my handsome boyfriend! Oh Howie honey; I send you hugs and kisses!

Thank you Ann! I hope you are staying cool in this heat!

Martha next time you are in town give me a call so we can have lunch again. If you have time maybe you can come to the studio and meet the assistants.

Tim thank you so much. I hope Cali. is escaping the heat wave.

Sherry Howie wants you to take him away from this heat!

Thank you Miss Char - I didn't know you were on blogger lady!
