Spring Promise Roses by Nancy Medina
Oil on Gallery Wrap Canvas
Spring Promise Roses is a new small work in the studio, as I deconstruct the large flower setup on my rubber maid roller cart, the wonderful new studio accessory I've been enjoying since the hubby found it on clearance at Office Max last weekend. I had to remove the sunflowers for a special commission I've begun of hydrangeas and white roses, so I'm going to treat myself to a trip to Central Market in the morning for fresh flowers! They don't allow photography in Central Market, so I can't share that trip with you, but their flower market is the closest thing to visiting the Dallas Arboretum you can get without driving to the actual gardens themselves (which will be quite packed this weekend, in fact, because of the Chihuly exhibit!).
So we'll avoid the real gardens and go to the store bought ones. I can hardly wait to see what their theme is this weekend. Last weekend it was "A Walk in Provence," so you may have noticed I borrowed that title a few times for new paintings over the past few days. Hubby and I are planning a REAL walk in Provence in the next 2 years. Now THAT trip I will share with you every step of the way, I just wish it would hurry up and get here!
Registration officially opened today for my 3-day workshop in the Texas Hill Country in historic Fredericksburg, Texas, July 6, 7 and 8. I hope you'll join me. It is a perfect place to unwind, sightsee, shop, eat out, and Paint!
The studio models take a bow!
