Sleep Time Sunflowers is the conclusion to a long day in the studio. In fact, the only worker bees left in here are AnnieBee Studio Director and myself! Today I drafted my March art newsletter and added some cool new photos of flowers from the Dallas Arboretum. If you haven't already signed up for my newsletter, you can do so in the box up there on your right at the top of the page. I never sell or share anyone's email address, and only send one newsletter per month to avoid filling up the inboxes. I also have a very stringent set of passwords in place to prevent Howard Pee Pugpants and other nefarious studio visitors from sending out pleas for Dog Chews or Squeaky Toys to unsuspecting subscribers. One must always be most vigilant when surrounded by clever helpers.

I had such a great time painting these white larkspur tonight I wanted to share a photo with you. Larkspur smells like perfume in the studio, but does not tend to last very long. I've been squirting this bunch with water like crazy, coaxing it to stay with us for a few more paintings. Stay tuned as I share more details about the upcoming Artscape show at the Dallas Arboretum, more images, and even more creative excuses why I am in here painting instead of prepping canvases and tags and boxes for the show.

Blue hydrangea plays a cameo role...

Hi Auntie Nancy
Do you paint that whole picture in just one day? Both are so beautiful.
We love all the flowers you paint.
You are like magic to us.

Tweedley, yes, if it's a small painting, I usually complete it in just a few hours. I'm gla dyou are inspired by my work, you always inspire me little poet laureate puggy!

Crimson you are so right. Usually my studio smells a bit like paint and puggies, but this week it smells heavenly like Larkspur!
