Ruby Red Gerberas are drying in the studio, after a productive day spent painting with my friend Deanna. AnnieBee and Hannah the pug were on hand to make sure Deanna and I never had a dull moment, so it was a bona fide girls' day here! Deanna brought donuts and honey buns and all kinds of delectable treats, which we did not share with the pugs, although Annie was quite eloquent in pleading her case for a nibble.

I arranged some red gerberas and white hydrangeas picked up from the market this morning, and Deanna whipped out a large painting in just a few hours, with some gorgeous red daisies and colorful hydrangeas. She finished up her flower vignette with a khaki toned background, perfect to set off the bright colors. For photos of our big day in the studio, see below! The pug helpers were also there, I promise, just a bit lower than the camera lens.

I love going through your blog and am constantly in awe of your flower paintings. Also love to see the pugs helping out, and reading about your farm upbringing, can understand why you love animals and nature the way you do. Very special.

You've both done beautiful pieces, Nancy. I so love the depth - or is it dimension? -in your daisies.
