Rise and Fall Sunflowers and Saving George the Tree Lizard by Texas Flower Artist Nancy Medina

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.

Rise and Fall on the Easel....
