Orange Slices - Nathalie Kelley

It has been almost a year since I have blogged. 
There was one post in October 2013 after I was involved in 

It has been an incredible year and a hard year with lots of 
blessings and lots of challenges - most that had nothing to do with art. 
I may or may not share about that along the way.
And if I do I will not bombard you all at once.
But one thing for sure - when life is hard, God is Good!. 
So here is Day 1 of the challenge. 

ORANGE SLICES
 8"X10" - Arches 140 lb cold press
I just got in a new set of Golden QOR watercolors
from Dick Blick!!! They are so vibrant and concentrated!
I also made a video of this painting but I have to edit before I post.
Hopefully I am back for awhile but 
I am not making any promises.
I do have a few videos that I have recently put on youtube
They are from the classes that I have been teaching at
WTC- College on the Square.
So when you have a minute or soooo...check them out!!!

I have come that they may have life, and have it to the full."

The photo here doesn't quite capture the depth of the shadows in this painting, it was a hard one to capture and trying to adjust all the settings took a while. This is a local cow in one of the fields next to the surf. I've been avoiding black cows since they are so hard to get right. It was raining pretty good on the island on this day. The rain was coming from offshore and if you can look closely you can decipher which way the beach would be.

Today is the first day of the 30 Paintings in 30 Days Challenge....and yes, I am participating again!  I enjoy a challenge and since I am working on a landscape series, my theme is Wildflower Landscapes.  Be sure to check out all of the work Leslie Saeta's 30 Paintings in 30 Days Paint Challenge.  This painting, Enchanting is now finished.  I reworked the clouds and flowers in the back ground.  I softened the sky with more paint and a large dry brush.  The flowers in the foreground are painted with thick, palette knife strokes...lots of texture.  Contact Kay for more information on this painting.  It is drying in the studio.  Thanks, Kay

Some Like It Hot Red Poppies
by Nancy Medina
14X14
Oil on Gallery Wrap Canvas




Your mission should you choose to accept it - *cue Mission Impossible theme music*....travel to Southern France, unplug the Inter-Web thingy, taste test a few pounds of delicieux gelato, feast your eyes on rolling hills, medieval villages, and flowers, and shop at the local markets until you need to acquire a new suitcase for the trip back home for all your new treasures...!

Why am I going to France? I'm doing a bit of advance reconnaissance for our trip there together for my painting workshop next August! My first workshop is full, but I have a few seats left in my Aug. 4-14, 2015 workshop at Le Vieux Couvent. I've saved some creme brulet with your name on it! Read more....

 Warm Heart Stargazer Lilies
by Nancy Medina

Oil on Gallery Wrap Canvas




Warm Hearts Stargazers is the daily newbie in Flower Mound Studio, where things are in a bit of a floral uproar, petals flying hither and yon, leaves scattered everywhere. The studio director in particular has been quite helpful as I pack for the dream vacation of a lifetime, a trip to Southern France. This is my first trip to France, and the hubby is going with so I'll have a big strong guy to carry all my baubles and trinkets and help scout out the best gelato in town. We were told to "pack light" so I've pretty much narrowed down to the following essentials: Read more...

Ahead of the Rest, by Melissa A. Torres, 14x11 pastels on paper

A few days ago I was a little under the weather. I did not feel like sitting at the easel, but did want to create something. I decided to pull out the pastels and paint something to cheer me up.  Sunflowers are one of my favorites.

This is available for purchase at Here.  Thank you!
