Good Day Sunshine Sunflowers and Dallas Arboretum Blooms by Texas Artist Nancy Medina

Good Day Sunshine Sunflowers was my class demonstration Saturday at the Dallas Arboretum, painted while it rained outside the classroom! Fortunately the big storm blew away quickly, so by the time class was over I was able to tiptoe around in the tulips and get some photos for you. The azaleas are just opening up, the very brightly colored bushes behind the tulips, and the cherry blossoms were framing the sky along all the walkways.

The new children's gardens will be opening this summer, an educational area that the volunteers are very excited about and I can hardly wait to see. The Dallas Arboretum is a hidden treasure, and I love visiting there. I posted photos yesterday for you, and here is a new batch. Got your comfy shoes on and your winter scarf? It could get a little blustery during our stroll. No worries, though, the snack bar by the front entrance has hot, delicious onion soup! Yum!

My favorite are the white azalea bushes...

 The garden designers have an incredible eye for color.

So much beauty!

 The tulips in all their glory!

These beauties were
right by the entrance.

I love your painting for this class! It is my very favorite in a long time
( big fan of purple and yellow). What a beautiful place to be, too. Thanks for the tour.
