SOLD ~ Summer Nights Red Geranium Painting and a North Texas Workshop by Floral Artist Nancy Medina

Summer Nights Red Geraniums
by Nancy Medina

Oil on Archival Panel

Tomorrow morning my three-day workshop in Irving, Texas begins, which enabled me to exercise little or no self-control in the Central Market *sound of harps* Flower Market today! For class this week, I found luscious, fat pink roses, white hydrangeas, purple and white stock, three kinds of sunflowers, red and white gerbera daisies, and at this point I simply lose track of everything else I grabbed and threw in the cart in a state of blind fervor. I know there was something purple in there, too. The two young flower gals (you may recall the "please ma'am, no photography in our flower market" incident) always activate a tiny red alarm under their shared counter when they see me, the crazy flower lady, approach with her giant cart, and with just a tiny bit of froth on her lips and her eyes bulging in a more than slightly alarming fashion, discombobulating their beautifully arranged blossoms and knocking gentle and undoubtedly wealthy (because this is, after all, Southlake, Texas) elderly ladies out of the way in her (my) haste to make away with more flowers than a sane person could possibly paint in three days. What will come of this insane flower shopping spree? Stay tuned to the art bloggy and I'll share all the details of my new three day workshop in the next few days!

Oh so beautiful! Almost like red hydrangeas (which I do not think exist). I love the mental image you painted for me too.
