Storm Chaser Sunflowers and Larkspur is the newest small painting in the studio, created after big thunderstorms left North Texas and headed east today. They're predicting sunshine for tomorrow, so that should make the transition back to the desk job a bit easier, though I'll be thinking of my paintbrushes fondly all the while I'm away. I wanted to paint something a little frivolous and lighthearted to put the cap on a really nice weekend.

Here are some photos of another project that has been ongoing this week, a 48X48 hydrangea painting I'm creating for a client. This highly technical photo session demonstrates my previously secret method for getting photos of super big paintings - the hubby holds them on the back porch. I posted this on my facebook page and lots of ladies had very nice things to say about hubby's legs. I especially like them, they walked a hot plate into the studio at dinnertime for me!

The studio models are looking perky and fresh!

A super big hydrangea painting (legs not included).

Vous avez raison de gardez les jambes !! elles peuvent encore servir !!...
Je suis éblouie par le format de vos hortensias qui sont très prometteurs.
Votre petite peinture est si ravissante avec des couleurs qui sont vivifiante. Un réel bonheur pour débuter ma journée.
Gros bisous

I love the word "larkspur" though probably couldn't show you the flower if my life depended on it. Love their addition to the sunflowers. The hydrangeas are so very beautiful, Nancy!

Well, not fair Nancy , that the legs are not included in that very large and lovely painting you created. : )

I'm painting bearded Irises thes much fun now that everything is coming into bloom again. Have a creative week.
