Summer Night Geraniums is resting on the easel after being batted around by my super large brush this evening. I've fallen in love with the 3/4 inch flats and find myself using them more and more lately, for just about everything, even the tiny centers of pansies!

I spent most of today's work time with that same brush on a large purple iris commission, and it seemed fitting to hop across the color wheel and produce some hot red geranium blossoms before washing up the brushes. Plus I have this super awesome geranium plant I bought from the (you guessed it) grocery store! The air in North Texas is super still tonight, not a breath of breeze, and almost feels like summer is about to pounce upon us with its hot claws again. My big geranium plant will go back out on the garden porch tomorrow to enjoy the cool weather while it lasts. The irises and pansies are also blooming, so it will be in good company.

Geranium models in the studio take a bow!

Ma chère Nancy votre atelier doit déborder de couleurs énergisantes... des notes fleuries qui sont loin de me déplaire... Je ne sais pas si je saurais peindre d'aussi beaux bouquets, mais ce que je suis certaine c'est que j'aimerais essayer... mais comme un enfant qui va commencer ses premiers pas, je n'ose pas. Je ne serais pas si loin je viendrais volontiers pour participer à vos cours.
Vos fleurs de géranium ont une grande force et j'aime ces petites touches de bleu répandues parcimonieusement sur vos nuances de rouges.
Gros bisous à vous et bon week-end.

Ps : Suite à votre demande en ce qui concerne le menu ! : aucun souci, j'adore cuisiner...

And they are so gorgeous!! We've been hitting low to mid 80s here but fortunately we're at least getting the cooler breezes of spring yet. I dread the heat and humidity so much. They make me long for my beloved Pacific Northwest. Inspiration from the grocery store is perfectly ok when beauty like this results!
