Day 15 ~ Memory Garden Pink Roses by Floral Artist Nancy Medina

Memory Garden Pink Roses

Memory Garden Pink Roses is the newest painting in Flower Mound Studio, and number 15 in the 30 Paintings in 30 Days Challenge by the Incomparable Leslie Saeta! These are roses from my visit to Coronado, California, this past spring, during my annual show on the island. The roses there grow so large, and never have an "off season," or training camp, or time away from the field. They grow 365 days a year, with the best light, the best sunshine, and some of the most beautiful cottage homes a rose's could ever desire.

Today my first workshop in San Diego, California, is almost full, with just 2 seats left. I'm taking a moment to say thank you. Thanks to my amazing and talented students, to those who have walked with me on this art journey and sent words of encouragement, and thank you to my collectors. I dared to step out on faith in April, when I quit my 6-figure job to become solely, inimitably, a full-time artist and art teacher. You are the reason my dream is coming true, and I am humbled, and so very thankful, for you.

Such gorgeous roses and I love the earth beneath the roses too. Such a rich and heady piece...I can almost smell the scent of roses right this moment!
