Rose and Fall Sunflowers and Pansies
by Nancy Medina
Oil on Gallery Wrap Canvas
Rise and Fall Sunflowers is the newest painting in Flower Mound Studio, and it is a bit of a race against time to capture these pansies while they are still fresh, still standing tall, in their tiny pots on my work bench. While out in the yard this evening, I noticed George the tree lizard perched inside the large trash can, about to fall into the bags and bags of detritus destined for the garbage truck on Thursday. Thinking fast, I scooped him up and put him on top of the lid, lest he be carried away from his garden of Eden. Once atop the lid, George did exactly what I thought he might do. He leaped four feet through thin air, like a scaly bird soaring sans gravity, and landed with tiny green toes firmly gripping the fence post nearby. I love seeing George fly like that. I think he was just letting me know that despite my intervention, he had things under control all along.
