Garden Gala Cottage With Roses and Hydrangeas by Texas Flower Artist Nancy Medina

Garden Gala Cottage With Roses and Hydrangeas
by Nancy Medina


Oil on Gallery Wrap Canvas

Garden Gala Cottage is the newest painting in Flower Mound Studio, as I unpack from my gear from my solo show on Coronado Island. Each year that I visit the island near San Diego, CA, I come home with even more ideas and inspiration for flower paintings. I've found my favorite cottages and visit them over and over again, the one just off Orange Avenue, near the heart of downtown, and two of my favorites next door to each other on Pomona Avenue.

The roses seem to get larger each time I see them, and this year I wanted to give you an idea of just how large they really are. Here is a photo from one of the award winning cottages. What do you think? Have you ever seen such large roses? I look at my own struggling little rose bushes and I'm glad they can't see this picture. They'd grow an inferiority complex or something....!

I promise I do not have small hands...

Je suis très admirative par cette belle peinture qui explose de couleurs avec cette avalanche de fleurs... magnifique.
Quelle beauté également cette rose... devant mon atelier j'ai des roses, Diane de Poitiers, qui sont extrêmement grosses, presque similaires à celle que vous nous montrez.
très jolie publication.
Gros bisous

Those roses are huge!

I have to confess that my favorite paintings are those with these gorgeous little cottages, fences, or landscapes. You handle them all beautifully and I always look forward to your Coronado weekend to share your views and joys in the place.
