Rose Corner Rose Arbor and Picket Fence Painting by Texas Flower Artist Nancy Medina

Rose Arbor is another new picket fence painting in Flower Mound Studio today. After a day in the office working on budget spreadsheets and a 32 page publishing contract, my brain needed red roses and a dose of serenity. A nice mocha coffee with whipped creme and real chocolate shavings on top would also be nice...and a foot massage. Unfortunately, I'll have to wait on those last items. The paintbrushes need washing and the pugs need bedtime walkies. If I hurry, I'll have just enough time to read a chapter or two out of my new Connie Willis book, All Clear, the sequel to her previous book, Blackout. If you like a really excellent time travel story, hers are the absolute best! I had no idea the sequel was out. What a nice surprise.

Un véritable coin de paradis que cette charmante barrière aux roses rouges...
Un travail merveilleux comme toujours... j'espère que vous aurez pu prendre un peu de bon temps après une journée aussi remplie.
Gros bisous

Nancy, your painting is lovely as usual. I have a couple of questions, first do you wear gloves when you paint? do you varnish your paintings?
Do you use an underpainting for instance a solid color or something else? I'm mostly a pastelist but am trying my hand at oils and they are so different! and I just love your flower paintings they are so fresh and somewhat loose but still enough detail to pull it off. I really admire your work!

Oh to have yards like these last two paintings. You always make me want to visit Coronado. Really beautiful, Nancy. My day yesterday was not fun at work either.

Oh Nancy red roses are so dear to me and these are rendered beautifully spilling over my dream cottage fence! Blessings, T

This one reminds me of a rose arbor that my mom planted many years ago. She had also planted a gourd vine and we had roses and gourds growing at the same time. Quite an unusual combination!
