Flame and Shadow Sunflowers and Clematis by Nancy Medina

Oil on Gallery Wrap Canvas

I wanted to go big, bold and bright with Flame and Shadow, so piled under layers and layers of color, ending with thick, fast, large strokes of hot color. It's a toasty day in Texas this week, and my helpers are lounging indoors under the AC, snoring on their super cushy orthopedic beds, awaiting second or third snack time. It's important they receive multiple snacks to help them survive the interminable few hours between their three meals a day.... With the exception perhaps of never getting to taste chocolate pie, it might be really nice to be a Pug.

Brightness and joy all around in this piece! Methinks I want to be one of your Pugs. Think of it. Howie and I snuggled together on an orthopedic bed...He's even learning to sing thanks to your husband. Sigh...the Pug's life...
