SOLD ~ Pink Hollyhocks and Moose Sightings in the Mountains by Floral Artist Nancy Medina

Pink Hollyhock Duo by Nancy Medina
Oil on Archival Panel

Pink Hollyhocks was inspired by a Utah garden last week during a plein air painting trip to the mountains with girlfriends. What a fabulous week we had hiking along rivers and painting amidst the aspens. I didn't spot any bears this year, but we did see a moose and her baby one morning. She returned later the same evening much closer to our cabin, and I got a video of her I'll share in my next art newsletter! I'm told a mama moose can be very aggressive, so I was the first one back to the cabin when she made her encore appearance.

Painting in the mountain air!

My office was outdoors today!
