Flower Mound, Texas, really is a place, it's a real town with a population of about 60,000, situated somewhere near the mid-point between Fort Worth and Dallas. Flower Mound is named for an Indian burial mound in the center of town.

I love this little town we live in, we have hundreds of miles of bike trails, sanctuary neighborhoods, and almost every type of shopping we need right close by. This is a painting of one of the trails just up the street from Flower Mound Art Studio, around the corner from the duck pond. I can walk out my front door and be in this spot in about 15 minutes. The flowers are done for the summer, but in the spring in the no mow zones, the wildflowers bloom in brilliant yellows, pinks and reds, and creeks this summer were full of running water. I wouldn't trade my neighborhood for any other place in Texas!
