Anniversary Daisies and a Secret About Pansies by Texas Flower Artist Nancy Medina

Anniversary Daisies by
Nancy Medina


Oil on Linen Board

Anniversary Daisies is a new painting created as a demonstration during my workshop in Fredericksburg, Texas, last weekend. I promised to share with you a secret I learned about pansies recently, and here it is. Trisha, one of the talented gals at Art and Frames by Wood Gallery shared this story with me during my show there a few weeks ago. Her grandmother showed her this, and I had never heard it before. Read the captions below and you'll see what it is! Did you know this?

In the center of every pansy.... a Queen or King!

Carolyn and her daisies!

New to me; guess that's why it's a secret.

Je connaissais la petite histoire concernant les pensées et les violettes aussi de par ma grand-mère qui avait une grande vocation pour les fleurs...
Votre bouquet de marguerites est extraordinaire... Une peinture aux couleurs vibrantes.

These colors are just wonderful, so bright and cheerful and brings a bit of light on a rather dismal (I don't feel too hot) day. Lovely work, Nancy!
