Pieces of Red Geraniums is a continuation of the geranium theme in the studio this week. This painting was actually finished yesterday, and today I painted a larger 16X20 version I'll share with you tomorrow, at the risk of deluging you with too many geraniums!

I was delighted to wake up this morning to find that two of my hydrangea paintings were purchased by a collector in Australia, in The Northern Territory. One of the first landscape palette knife paintings I ever completed was of the Kata Tjuta mountain range from that region. And when I say region, it is so vast it is continent sized all on its own! This was about six years ago, and I would never have dreamed at that time that I would someday be sending paintings there. I've shared a picture of that palette knife painting with you below. Quite a change in my style over the years, don't you think?

How awesome to have your work collected in Australia, the Land Down Under! Congratulations, Nancy. Love the palette knife painting too. The geraniums are just so jaunty, so springy!

Nancy you are becoming an 'internationally collected artist'! I love the palette knife landscape. To me your floral paintings are growing in depth. So happy for you - you are such a hard working artist!
