Ginger Jar Geraniums is the newest painting in Flower Mound Studio, after a busy weekend teaching at the Dallas Arboretum. I painted geraniums and white daisies for my first class demo on Saturday, and then sunflowers in the afternoon. My feet were tired but my heart was happy - teaching art is definitely becoming my favorite thing to do. We had a fun day painting in the most beautiful gardens in North Texas, and even had sunshine (after a week of rain). The Arboretum classrooms are roomy and have skylights that let in tons of natural light, and the staff and volunteers stay with us all day to lend a hand whenever needed.

I hope you will join me soon for a workshop in Flower Mound Studio, in Fredericksburg, Texas, or right back at the Dallas Arboretum again! You can find more workshop information here. Come paint with me!
