Sunflowers and Blue Gladiolus by Texas Artist Nancy Medina

Sunflowers and Blue Gladiolus

Sunflowers and Blue Gladiolus is drying on the easel in Flower Mound Studio, on another hot day in North Texas. The good news is, paint dries quickly when it is this warm out! I'm painting quickly because I have a house full of new flowers from my big spree at the grocery store last weekend, some of them are fading fast. The pink hydrangeas have about another day, so perhaps tomorrow it will be their turn in the spotlight. I have a rather logical system about deciding what to paint.

I decided this evening on red poppies and pulled out all my materials on red poppies, dozens of photos and files and old paintings to remind me of certain color combinations. And then, voila, I painted sunflowers and blue cannas. I know, it makes no sense to me either. Sometimes I just go with the muses and toss logic to the wind!

Meet the studio models!
