Walk With Me is a new painting in Flower Mound Studio of one of my favorite paths in the Dallas Arboretum. I've spent so many hours wandering around the grounds, but I always find some new treasure each time I visit. You will find this scene if you are coming from the rose gardens and walking out back toward the main entrance.

At the end of the day, the sun throws a golden light on top of the flowers, and I tried to capture a bit of that here. Thank you to every one of you who has walked with me on my art journey, some of you have followed my work for months, and a few maybe for years. It's good to have a supportive friend by your side. Especially for those times when you are not sure you are on the right path, but you are trying. Your comments and kind words mean a lot to me. Thank you so much for sharing them.

Thank you Camille, and your painting of Faith is too beautiful for words.

Oh Nancy, what a lovely painting, so different from the other gorgeous floral studies you do, yet still with that vibrancy I love in your work. This looks an idyllic place and I can see why it holds special memories for you. Thank you for such a pretty 'scene' to brighten my dull Queensland afternoon. Hugs to the pugs too.

I so love your whole landscapes, Nancy. This one is especially beautifully because of that gorgeous tree! I was wondering if your friends sold their iris place yet? I can't remember the name of it off the top of my head, but I remember you saying it was another of your favorite places for inspiration and that they older couple were wanting to sell. Wish I could buy, but alas, that will never happen! Still, I wondered if they did sell.

Those tulips are SINGING under the tree and along the pathway - beautiful lighting.

Bohemian, as far as I know Joe and Donna have not sold Argyle Acres Iris Farm yet, their web site is still up and running. It is such a beautiful property.
