SOLD ~ Hearts Wing Blue Hydrangeas and Dallas Arboretum Workshops by Texas Flower Artist Nancy Medina

Hearts Wing Blue Hydrangeas
by Nancy Medina

Oil on Archival Panel

Hearts Wing Blue Hydrangeas is the newest small work in the studio. The big ole blue hydrangea plant I carried out of the market a few days ago (whilst trumpets played) is still looking perky, and even put up with my mud lamp spotlight for a few hours this evening during the painting session. Studio Director AnnieBee and I got home from Mom's farm in East Texas today and she went right to sleep, exhausted. Living out of a suitcase can be a bit taxing, but it is still worth it to be able to spend so much quality time with Mom right now. I won't go into great detail about the hour by hour adventures of a Mom in hospice care who refuses to sleep, wants to cook all her own meals, and is encouraging me to partake of her "all you can eat whenever you want to eat" menu per doctor's orders. I sense a visit to the Jenny Craig Web site will be next on my to-do list....!

Tomorrow morning the hubby wants to spend the day with me at the Dallas Arboretum. This will be a great excuse to stop in and say hi to Joy and Megan in the Education Department. These talented ladies are cooking up a few new spring workshops for me there very soon. Rumor has it there are already some early spring bloomers making an appearance in the gardens! Stay tuned to the bloggy, I promise to share photos with you, all my flower friends!

The Studio Models take a bow!
