Dianne's Flowers

Study of Dianne's Flowers, 16 x 12

Well, I painted with some of my inspiring art friends at Dianne Harrison's very zen riverfront studio last week, and did this study of one of her set-ups.  I had brought along a (New Traditions) panel that was toned red/orange, which I mostly use for landscape, and I struggled with it.  But that bright toning kind of worked to get me out of my recent pale mode.  Below is Juanita Kauffman's ipad painting, all free and bright; it makes a tempting case for the digital creation, non?

The Provence trips (see are almost full, check out the link at Painting Trips to Provence if you want to join us in September, 2011.  Meanwhile, I am honored to have 2 paintings recently accepted into Salon International 2011, which will open at Greenhouse Gallery, San Antonio, Texas, in April!

  1. Just beautiful Nancy! I love the flowers and the different background. Of course, I love all of your paintings! And congratulations on the two paintings accepted into Salon International this year! They are both awesome in their own way!

  2. The flowers are beautiful and I love the background color. I got an ipad as a gift and am
    thinking I might have to try a painting on it.
