Petal Pushers Sunflowers and Daisies by Texas Artist Nancy Medina
Petal Pushers Sunflowers and Daisies is the newest painting in Flower Mound Studio, as I start work on a new four foot container garden for the gallery in Coronado, California. My Christmas commissions are all delivered safe and sound! This was the busiest quarter I've ever experienced for my art, which worries me just a bit since the busiest time is usually spring, which is just around the corner. I definitely need to hire some elves or at least get a few studio assistants with thumbs. Not that my current assistants don't lend a helpful paw now and then, ensuring Mom gets away from the easel long enough to get some perspective on things.
New Year's eve is fast approaching, and another year has gone by. I have a feeling, and I'll let you know if it comes true, that next year is going to bring some big changes. I had the Christmas blues for a few days, but already feel my spirits lifting. I hope that you are having a good holiday season, and not feeling down from all the overwhelming hustle and bustle of it all. This is a tough time when loved ones are far away. I'm so thankful my family is very close, but sad that I can't see my dear friends who live in other states. Thank goodness for the internet, and the phone!
