Toreador Red Rooster Painting by Texas Artist Nancy Medina

Toreador Red Rooster
by Nancy Medina
Oil on Linen Board


Toreador Red Rooster is the newest painting in Flower Mound Studio, after a day at the farm with Mom and the family to celebrate Christmas Eve. Howard Pee Pugpants and his sister Annie joined us for the trip, and Howie spent most of the evening poking his head in any open door, whether it was a pantry door, the cabinet, or the closet under the stairs (which in fact was filled with enough treasure to keep him busy for 10 minutes). It was such a good day, with the whole family there, and mom feeling pretty good, a Christmas ham, mashed potatoes and yeast rolls. What a great way to start the holiday.

Tomorrow Carlos and I are going to the show and then it will be time to make more Christmas cookies, since we gave away all we had to the neighbors, and made the grievous mistake of not keeping a plate for ourselves. I hope you have something fun planned tomorrow, and some simple family traditions that give you happiness. Merry Christmas, joy and peace to you from the pugs and I!
