Sundance Sunflower by Texas Flower Artist Nancy Medina

Sundance Sunflower by Nancy Medina
Oil on Linen Board

Sundance Sunflower is the newest painting in Flower Mound Studio and is a small study based on my flagging, fading, drooping sunflowers. They are the last of the Mohicans, the last fresh flowers left. The hydrangeas finally lost their sparkle, so I put each of them in the ground with high hopes and a nice drink of water that we would meet again next spring. I think tomorrow I'll have to sweep up the yellow petals and toss these in the bin.

AnnieBee is also a little pooped, but still has enough energy to kibitz. Her majesty had a big weekend - Sunday was the 15th Annual PugOWeen for Dallas Ft Worth Pug Rescue. She selected her lifeguard outfit for her parade before the judges. Despite her perfect figure and form fitting outfit, Annie did not take home a ribbon. With 800 peeps and their pugs competing, you could say competition was fierce! Fortunately, a little bite of hotdog was enough to assuage any hurt feelings...
