Star Bright White Pansies and a Table Garden Grows by Texas Flower Artist Nancy Medina

Star Bright White Pansies is a new painting in the studio, drying a few feet away from the large still life commission pictured below. The new garden is 30X40 in size and will include a wicker basket of white daises, a green apple or two, and a few sunflowers fading into the background. I'm making all the containers glass, to give the piece an indoor table garden feel. It's fun to bring a little summer in to the studio on a chilly, wet winter night in Flower Mound. The babies are all sound asleep, the dishes are washed, the laundry put away, and the only thing left to close out the evening will be to wash my paint brushes. I've got a great new scary book on my IPad, so I'll treat myself to a few pages before sleep.

Very early tomorrow morning I am going to have a small skin cancer removed, so please think positive thoughts for me! I've decided to look at the day as a vacation away from the day job, and a chance to spend the entire afternoon with my little ones in the studio, once the procedure is done. Maybe I'll even treat myself to donuts...

Il est toujours très agréable de passer visiter votre blog... Cette année les roses perdurent dans le jardin... Il fait encore doux pour la saison... Je n'ai pas encore planté les pensées... Les vôtres sont très belles et votre tableau en cours prend une très jolie tournure...
Gros bisous à vous.

Hi Auntie Nancy! I am sending good vibes your way for the little procedure you are having tomorrow. I just know you will be fine. I will be thinking of you all day so just squeeze my paw if you get scared.

Dear Auntie Nancy
I will be sending you all my good wishes too (and my moms too).
We will be with you, and then I send my healing bubbles to heal you!
love

Love the background color to highlight these pansies and make them the star of the show! The container garden is coming along beautifully too.

My thoughts and prayers are with you today, Nancy. Hopefully you'll get some much needed rest today too. Well...for me it is much needed so I'm hoping you get the rest so I can rest vicariously.

Thank you little Tiffy, I wish I could give you a squeeze little one, I sure miss you!

Tweedley your healing bubbles were floating around the doctor's office. Everyone else was wondering what they were, but I knew they were from you!

Thank you Bohemian, I confess there was a late afternoon nap with the fatties.... wishing healing thoughts to you!

Trudy I went for the chocolate almond croissant! : )

Wendy I'm delighted to see you joined the followers today, thank you for your kind words and happy holidays!
