Vero Amore Red Geraniums and Recycled Flowers - Flower Paintings by Nancy Medina


Vero Amore Red Geraniums
by Nancy Medina

Oil on Archival Panel

Vero Amore Red Geraniums was one of my seven class demonstrations from my Lafayette, Louisiana workshop last week. What on earth do I do with all those flowers at the end of a workshop? For those in pots, I plant them in my garden! It's the ultimate in flower workshop recycling. My used turpenoid is picked up on my doorstep by the Town of Flower Mound. All of the supply boxes are recycled, and I've never thrown away a canvas in my life. Everything is re-used, repurposed, or recycled. It just seems fitting that the flowers get another chance for fresh air, considering all the hours they spent under the spotlight!

When I went to Calloway's Nursery to pick up soil this week, I found a treasure. Visit my art blog today to see a picture of the one item I could not leave without!


The studio models take a bow!
