Dawn Blossoms is the newest container garden in Flower Mound Studio, and will be one of the new works on display during my show at the Dallas Arboretum for Artscape March 16, 17 and 18. I hope you will join me there, I hope the weather will cooperate, I hope it will not be too hot or cold, or snow. One must hope strategically when holding an outdoor art show in Texas, where the weather can go from 80 degrees to 30 degrees in the same day.

Also pictured here is a photo of Dawn Blossoms in the studio, the tiny thumbnails on these blogs make it very difficult to get an idea of larger paintings sometimes. The studio assistants asked me to clearly note that the pug toy is not included in the purchase of this painting.

Speaking of whom, foster pug Hannah goes tomorrow to have her teeth cleaned. I'm a bit nervous, because Hannah has a paralyzed larynx, and is one of our special needs rescues, despite her insistence that she is tough as nails and her ability to push to the front of the line at snacktime. Please keep my little chunky girl in your thoughts and prayers tomorrow, this will likely be the first dental she has ever had in her life. She has an inflamed canine tooth, and she desperately needs the cleaning done. It is a balancing act, sometimes, caring for these special needs babies, and I really hope I am making the right decision for this little one!

My thoughts and prayers go with Hannah, Nancy. Yes, having pets is a balancing act when it comes to medical decisions.

Your container garden is beautiful and I love the variety of flowers with their beautiful colors. You have my favorite hydrangeas and my favorite pitcher vase all in one delightful painting!

Beautiful work Nancy. Regarding Hannah good dental care can often prolong their lives by many years. I certainly hope this for your little Hannah. Blessings
