Yellow Lace Roses and Letters From Port Fairy by Nancy Medina


Yellow Lace Roses by Nancy Medina
Palette Knife/Oil on Gallery Wrap Canvas

Yellow Lace Roses is the newest daily painting in Flower Mound Studio, a fun escape back to my wild side of big brush strokes and fat color. One of the nicest things about blogging and sharing your art on Pinterest and Facebook is the kind people you "meet" from afar. I received a wonderful note yesterday from Wilma, 75, from Port Fairy, a seaside tourist town southwest of Victoria, Australia. Can you imagine living in a place that sounds this magical? Wilma was kind enough to share photos of her amazing garden, and noted that it is full summer there now. While we shiver and stick close to the footheaters here in the studio, Wilma's hollyhocks are blooming in red ruby glory and her gardens are full of color. She told me her petunias have "gone to God" but her hydrangeas will probably be back when the weather cools again. She has the assistance of two four-footed helpers, her King Charles Spaniel, Daisy, and her black and white kitty, Maggie, both of whom, she assures, are properly spoiled. I hope I hear from her again...

The studio models take a bow!

This is painting Number 22 in the
