Blue Iris Balboa Sunset by Texas Flower Artist Nancy Medina

Blue Iris Balboa Sunset is my newest daily painting in Flower Mound Studio, as I pack up paints and palette for my landscape workshop tomorrow in North Texas. I'm looking forward to visiting Balboa Park again in April, when I'll be on Coronado Island in Southern California for my annual solo show painting in the garden at Art and Frames by Wood Gallery. I'm working on a whole set of new four-foot container garden paintings for the show, so stop by and say hello and enjoy refreshments and art in the garden. The gallery is right in the heart of downtown, just a few doors down from Starbucks, so grab a latte and come on by!

I'm sharing one of my favorite photos from Balboa Park here, my husband, Carlos, taking a stroll through the gardens with a jiggly wiggly lovely little girl named Dandy. Carlos and I moved from Southern California to Dallas over 10 years ago. Our best friends there like to call us every year or so to tell us how much more our condo is worth now, and how nice the sunshine is, and how beautiful the ocean and fresh the seafood is. It's always good to have friends to keep things in perspective, don't you agree?

I find every single state has its good points, dear Nancy. Yep, Cali is pretty but I've seen some beautiful photos out of Texas too. LOL Gorgeous painting and the architecture in that photo of Carlos and Dandy is magnificent!
