Garden Medley Sunflowers and Poppies by Texas Flower Artist Nancy Medina

Purchase Information

Garden Medley is another foray into the forbidden sunflower zone. My art agent doesn't want sunflowers, she says they are not "in," my favorite gallery wants new paintings without sunflowers, and my studio is already filled to the gills with sunflowers. And yet, the urge to paint them again has overpowered me, kind of like the urge to eat that fruit tart my husband brought into the studio tonight with a dollop of whippy creme on top, even though I am trying like the dickens to lose three pounds so I won't look portly for the annual editorial board retreat where everyone including myself will be wearing jeans all weekend. Will power is definitely not my strong point, already, in this new year, and we're only 12 days into 2012! I hope you are doing a bit better than I am. I have not even made it to the gym yet.

Another beauty, so full of zest, so happy! Love the addition of the eggs (though I couldn't tell you why; I just do!). Can you send some willpower my way, Nancy? I could stand to lose about 55 pounds.

We love your sunflowers, no matter what!
We need will power too
