I adore flowers and LOVE to walk up and down the isles, admiring the vivid blooms, the fragrance scents that fill the space they call the garden section.
All that comes to an abrupt end when the first day that the temperature hits 100. The reality of the Las Vegas summers is once again painfully obvious as I try to ignore yellowing and wilting of what was once so vibrant and colorful. You would think I would just give up but here I am again with a scrawny morning glory vine and wilted herbs lining the entrance to my home.
It really all started with this old red flyer wagon that belongs to my neighbor. He asked if I would paint one of my little mice with some flower pots in it for his wife. They are such excellent neighbors I had to say yes. Little did I know this was going to turn into such a thing. It seems now my summer focus has been that of purple hydrangeas and lavender.
I've painted several pieces and now I'm doing commission work based on this design. The old reclaimed pallet wood panel has become a requested favorite and has my husband out scouring the desert for more weathered wood. It keeps him out of trouble so this is a good thing.
Here are the last 4 pieces I have managed to finish as of late. I hope you enjoy and they all bring a smile to your face. Check out more of my work to purchase on my ETSY SHOP.
