Golden Halo Sunflowers and Hydrangeas
by Nancy Medina

Class Demonstration

20X16
Oil on Archival Panel


Golden Halo Sunflowers and Hydrangeas was one of my class demonstrations in San Diego, California, last week, and no sooner was I unpacked than it was time to put on the winter clothes and turn on the foot heaters here in North Texas. Studio Director AnnieBee has also decided it is winter, and spends hours in her new bed snoring near the easel. I've shared a photo on my bloggy today for you, since it's always good to have evidence when you discover your Number One Helper sleeping on the job!

A Day in Florence with Niki Gulley and Scott Williams, Tuscany Art Trek 2014

Day 6, Tuscany Art Trek with Niki Gulley and Scott Williams

On the next day of our Tuscany Art Trek, we hit the ground running by spending a full day in Florence. Visiting the Uffizi and Academy Museums with their incredible collections of Renaissance art, the impressive marble Duomo and famous Bronze Baptistry doors, wandering the cobble stone streets and admiring the stone architecture, fountains and sculptures, and allowing extra time for shopping.

We ended the day with you guessed it – another delicious meal! Then we wandered back through the romantic golden-lit streets to see the beautiful view of the Ponte Vecchio over the Arno at night.

French Market Flower Quest and a Sonoma Workshop - Nancy Medina Art

http://nancymedina.fineartstudioonline.com/workszoom/1615425


 French Market Flower Quest
by Nancy Medina
14X14
Oil on Gallery Wrap Canvas



 French Market Flower Quest is the daily newbie in Flower Mound Studio, I needed a color burst to balance "real life" today - I attended my first jury duty calling. I was quite nervous, which seems odd, considering my mother worked in the district clerk's office for almost 20 years. Something about the thought of being asked my name and my job by a judge with the power to send me to jail had me all in a tizzy. But I must say, it made me reflect on something rather profound - I was about to say, under oath, the following words:

I am an artist


How wonderful is that? There is something life affirming, color affirming, art journey affirming, about that moment under oath. The truth, your honor, and nothing but the truth. What happened? Read more....

Empty Nest Waiting by Kay Wyne


Empty Nest Waiting
8" x 16" Oil on Canvas
Contemporary Palette Knife Painting
Empty Nest Waiting is framed up and hanging at Dutch Art Gallery in Dallas, Texas.  I used a wide brush and my palette knife to create this contemporary nest painting. You can see the wide brushstrokes in the background...I didn't get fussy with it.  I painted it, and left the paint so that the brush strokes were visible.  The sticks and twigs of the nest are thick and textured.  Thanks for looking at this blog.....Kay

Day 5, Tuscany Art Trek with Niki Gulley and Scott Williams

Pienza ©2014 Niki Gulley • 6" x 12" textured oil painting • SOLD
Day 5, Tuscany Art Trek with Niki Gulley and Scott Williams

After a busy day in Siena, we took it easy the next day staying closer to home base. While some painted the beautiful view of Pienza from our villa in the morning, the photographers and sightseers visited more of the nearby hill towns. We relaxed that afternoon and went for a delicious meal in town that night. A rejuvenating day!

Purple Flash Sunflowers, San Diego Photos and a Florida Invitation - Nancy Medina Flower Paintings

http://nancymedina.fineartstudioonline.com/workszoom/1613581

 Purple Flash Sunflowers
by Nancy Medina
12X12
Oil on Gallery Wrap Canvas


Shed your winter coats and join me

in January in Orlando, Florida! 

Click here for the scoop!






Purple Flash Sunflowers is the newest daily in Flower Mound Studio, and, as promised, here are some images from my workshop in San Diego, California, last week. While it was snowing in Dallas, we were shedding jackets and scarves in sunny Southern California.

On Friday, my students and I took a tour of Balboa Park, one of the most famous places to visit in California. Even this late in the year, I was excited to see so many flowers were in bloom. Rain is desperately needed in Southern Cali right now, so think good thoughts for Mother Nature to give these gardens a drink. Grab your flip flops and visit my blog for the flower photo tour!


"Andrea" by Gaye Sekula

Granddaugter, Andrea, also framed before a photo was taken. I'll get a system down before too much longer! This one was a combination of both hard and soft pastels.
