Sweet Cantaloupe and Sunflowers caused quite a stir with the four-footed studio assistants. Little noses were pointed upward, and eyes were searching the heavens for morsels that - if only an earthquake or some other wonderful event would happen - could fall to the ground and land in little mouths. Even the hubby had to be forewarned that at least a portion of the sweet fruit on the kitchen counter must not be consumed, and must be reserved for the easel.

Now that the painting is done, however, the cantaloupe will have to face its own demise, doled out to little mouths that have been eagerly waiting all evening, and then the rest chopped and packaged tightly in tupperware for a lunchtime treat at work tomorrow. Rarely is there a time when fruit props in the studio do not instill high drama. I'm sure the same is true for you, if you have four-footed helpers nearby.

Sweet Smiles Sunflowers is a new painting in the studio, on a day that had a very nice moment I think I will never forget. A few moments before mom was checked out of the hospital this afternoon, and before she left for home, she received a phone call from my niece, Robin. This was the first day of College for Robin. Robin's school day ended at 2:30 pm. At 2:35 pm, the phone rang and she was calling for my mom, to tell her how it went. She had psychology today, and her friend was in the class with her. Robin really liked her psychology course. I am so proud to have a niece who has such a lovely heart that her first thought on such an important day was for her grandmother. I can't think of anything more wonderful that could have happened, can you? Robin has spent almost every weekend since she was a tiny toddler at her grandmother's house. She has spent most of her summer there, too. When my mother was little, she spent every summer at her grandmother's house. It's a beautiful tradition.

Summer Blossoms Container Garden is my newest four-foot container garden and is on display at The Good Art Company Gallery. These large gardens tend to develop as they are painted, with one flower pointing the way to the next bunch that will be painted. I usually try to start with two or three main ideas for pots and flower combinations, but sometimes a certain color changes that careful planning completely, calling for a different flower completely to reside next door. I'll have all my work materials ready to paint red geraniums, and suddenly I become convinced that blue hydrangeas have to go in that big pot on the left.

There is no conscious rhyme or reason that goes into the planning, my subconscious seems to run the show. Here is a detail from the garden, and I hope you'll stop by and visit my garden the next time you are in the Texas Hill Country at The Good Art Company Gallery in Fredericksburg, Texas.

Thank you so much for the kind words for my mom, she has been moved out of the ICU, and her doctor said she may come home tomorrow!

Purple Studio Irises is a new work drying on the easel in Flower Mound Studio, and it's been an eventful week here. Mom is back in the hospital after she suffered a fall at home on Friday, but the good news is that she is doing very well. She has to use her oxygen all the time now, and the cord for her oxygen got tangled in her recliner Friday morning and she fell trying to untangle it. Fortunately, my aunt and my niece were there, and my niece (who is partially deaf) heard mom ringing her bell and woke up and came downstairs to help mom up and call for help. We are hoping she'll be home from the hospital in just a day or two.

In the meantime mom's had lots of visits from daughters and loved ones. The ICU waiting room has become a very familiar place for my family. I cannot imagine what it would be like to be going through this if I did not have my sisters. We are like sailors on a ship in a rough ocean, always encouraging each other, remembering funny events to keep our spirits up, and most of all just hanging on together for dear life.

I had a nice surprise today when I learned that the Dallas Arboretum had placed one of my rose paintings on the front of their Web site to announce their adult painting classes for the fall. I immediately texted mom, of course, only to hear that she had already seen it on The Facebook, thanks to my sister. Again, I have to say, mothers know everything.

I hope if you are in the North Texas region you will join me at the Dallas Arboretum for an indoor painting workshop on Saturday, October 8. We are going to have a fun day at the most beautiful gardens in Texas.

I am going to keep my class size small so I can focus on every student, and all levels of experience are welcome. So hurry and sign up for Painting Flowers in Oils under the Educational tab of the Dallas Arboretum Web Site! I would absolutely love to see you there.

Heart's Harmony Hydrangeas is a new work in Flower Mound Studio, and it's another hot day in Dallas, Texas. I didn't have time to buy any fresh flowers this afternoon after work, so I pushed my paints in an abstract way to intensify some temperature changes and have fun with color. My hydrangeas are from a photo taken in Carmel, California a few months ago, a trip I now remember with great nostalgia, since we had to layer our clothing and wear jackets in the evenings. I do think that if Global warming is on its way, I'd like to be stuck on the part of Earth that freezes, rather than the part that broils.

Sunflowers and Blue Agapanthus is drying on the easel in Flower Mound Studio, as the assistants nap in strategic locations around the base of the easel. I called mom yesterday to share the great news about my blue ribbon in the art show. "I know," she said, "I saw it on The Facebook." I'm not sure why that surprised me. I first realized mom would always be one step ahead of us around the time I was five years old and discovered that she really could see the four of us girls fighting in the back seat of the Carmen Ghia while she was driving. Thus, she had to be telling the truth about having eyes in the back of her head.

Mom sent me a text message a few days ago. My Aunt Bitsy, who stays with my mom (Elsie), texted me a few seconds in advance.

Aunt Bitsy's text said,
"Els is texting. Get ready."

I wrote back:
"Standing by!"

Three minutes later I received this text from my mother:
"Have a seat."

I wrote back:
"I'm sitting - what r u doing?"

Mom wrote back:
"Breathing. Bye"

My sleepy Sunday yesterday got a bit of a wake up call when I learned I had won first place in the 2011 Annual Judged Show of the Mid Cities Fine Arts group in Hurst, Texas. Silent Serendipity White Poppies took first in the Works on Canvas Category. I was tickled pink to hear that my friend and art mentor Fran Chausse White won an honorable mention in the same category for her beautiful poppy painting.

On a sad note, the white studio hydrangeas lost the gloss on their bloom, their beauty faded, their youthful perkiness was no more, and alas, withered and alone, they found themselves tossed into the bin heap of life, forgotten and unappreciated in Flower Mound Studio. Old age is a cruel, cruel thing.

Market Mix Hydrangeas is a small painting I completed after a series of large hydrangea paintings. A sensible painter would do the small study first, learn something important, and apply that to a new, large painter. Me, I like to make my mistakes on big canvases. I think it has something to do with me being a shopaholic. My sister said I really need to acquire the habit of checking price tags before I get to the register at some point. I'm not sure how one of those goes with the other, but somehow there is a subliminal connection.

Time Passages Hydrangeas by Texas Flower Artist Nancy Medina

Time Passages Hydrangeas

SOLD

Time Passages Hydrangeas is drying on the easel in Flower Mound Studio while that old song floats around in my head. My sister told me today that mom is starting to get a bit confused, and when you tell her something, she cannot always repeat back to you exactly what you said. Mom is end-stage COPD, a lifetime smoker with asthma. Her last two hospital stays were frightening, and her doctor, an extraordinary man with six children who runs a free clinic on weekends in a low income area for the poor, told us to prepare ourselves. She has been sleeping more lately, but still makes an occasional excursion to the grocery store with her portable oxygen.

Mom is still solidly in charge of her kitchen, ensuring her 40 plus year old daughters pour up the iced tea properly, and do not overcook the dinner rolls. But the fire is beginning to fade a tiny bit, and this fills my heart with such sorrow. I bought a book last year called Conversations With Your Mother. Over time I would bring it over and when she was in the mood, she'd answer some of the questions for me. When I brought it to her house last weekend, she only had one word answers for most of the questions. I am hoping she will be feeling better next weekend when I visit again. How I wish I could go back 10 years in time, and be given back those days and days with her. For now, I am very thankful, though, for the time we have.

Black Grapes and Purple Lilacs is an old favorite getting a moment in the blog spotlight, after a fun day in the studio teaching a workshop. J'Lynn, my student, did a brilliant job on her hydrangeas today, and was extremely patient with the little troop of helpers that never left her side. I think J'Lynn did such a great job, especially considering she has never painted in oils before! The pugs were so happy to have visitors, I am sure they thought the entire day had been planned for their enjoyment.

There is nothing better than spending a day in the studio with a friend and having happy puggies snoring contentedly in the evening. I hope you had a nice Friday, and to think - there are two more whole days to the weekend ahead! Have a great one!

Glass Jar Hydrangeas will probably be the last painting I can coax from this lovely bunch of hydrangeas I found at the grocery store two days ago. The flower selection in the stores has never been so thin, and today I even tried several other stores, and could find no more hydrangeas, and no sunflowers. Instead there were several varieties of roses, so it looks like I'll be spending time with roses for the next few days!

Tomorrow I teach a class here in the studio and my assistants have promised to be on their best behavior. The boys will be locked up in the kitchen, however, since four pugs underfoot is a challenge even for the most intrepid of artistic souls. Carlos has made a wonderful homemade quiche for us, and cut up fresh watermelon, so lunch will be quite the occasion! I know I should be saying sage things about painting, but for some reason that warm quiche is distracting me....

Have a wonderful weekend, my painting friends, and may your next canvas be a masterpiece!

Heavenly Blossoms Hydrangeas hopped onto the canvas pretty quickly today, and I have no real explanation for that. I had been wanting to paint white hydrangeas again for quite some time and went flower shopping tonight, for sunflowers. Not a single sunflower was available in the grocery store. But to my delight, one last solitary white hydrangea bundle was saying "Come hither...." and so I hithered on over there and bought the expensive thing!

The helpers are snoozing, evening temperatures are cooling off, and all is well in Flower Mound Studio. How are you surviving the summer? I hope you are not getting the heat we are! These hydrangeas are not fans of the heat, and I'll be interested to see if they are still fresh tomorrow for another modeling session. They were not cheap, and they have to earn their keep!

Sweet Temptations Sunflowers may look familiar - it is based on many of the same studio stars who posed for me last night. My models are starting to fade, drooping here, sagging there, needing an injection of some plumping formulas in certain areas. My mind is traveling down this road because I had to make a dermatology appointment today. A little mole on my temple has changed and so it's time for the doctor to take a peek. The last time I saw her she tried to talk me into some magical injections for my lips, and some excellent rejuvenating elixirs for the areas around my eyes. Something tells me that moles are losing their fascination for her.

Moonstruck Stargazer Lily is the small study that inspired my larger painting, Star Struck Stargazers. The Perseid Meteor Shower will peak tonight, but when I took the pugs out a few minutes ago, I could only see a few stars twinkling. I may need to set my alarm for 3 am for the best viewing, but stars are not so bright when you live in a town like Flower Mound, so close to Dallas.

When my three sisters and I were in our early teens (yes, four daughters all in their teens at the same time, can you imagine?), we stayed up all night and watched the Perseids Meteor Shower. My Dad laid a quilt in the back of his old green Ford pickup and we lay side by side, just us girls, counting the shooting stars until our giggling was so distracting we lost the tally. I don't remember it being hot, I don't remember the mosquitoes that must have been swarming. I do remember laughing with my sisters until my sides ached, and the gorgeous streaks of light that were endless in the sky, like diamonds falling through water. Sisters are not diamonds, but they sure are priceless!

Wild at Heart Sunflowers and Larkspur is drying on the easel in Flower Mound Studio and I am finally unpacked from my trip to St. Louis, my home town. This was a quick business trip, just one evening for a conference, but I had the good fortune to stay at the Hilton by the new baseball field downtown. The hotel was decorated with dozens of vintage photos of Cardinal baseball players from years ago, and brought back memories of my grandpa, Poppy.

Pop was a pitcher for the St. Louis Browns, the farm team for the Cardinals, back when he was a young guy who captured the attention of my beautiful grandmother, Kathleen. The picture below is not my grandfather, but was hanging in my hotel room, and I loved seeing the old stands in the background. This is the field my mother used to come to as a child to watch baseball games, she told me tonight, when I described the photo to her.

Poppy retired from his baseball career early, before the Browns went on to become the Baltimore Orioles. He opened a tavern back in a time when families went to taverns together, taking their children to eat and socialize. Poppy was quite the character, and never met anyone he did not like. He and my grandmother fought like cats and dogs, but I think she never stopped loving him, despite his faults. They don't make men like my grandpa any more. (And yes, I can hear my grandmother's ghost whispering, "and it's a good thing!").

The Good Art Company Gallery Art Walk event was great fun, with lots of sales, lots of great food (including chocolate frozen yogurt!) and a chance to visit with some of my favorite collectors I haven't seen in years.

We had music, wine and hundreds of visitors in the gallery, despite the record Texas heat. It seemed everyone was looking for a reason to celebrate the sun being down. Annie greeted her fans with equanimity, though her majesty did begin to fade toward the end of the evening, due to her strenuous work schedule that day. She helped oversee the hanging of over 28 new pieces of art, played with Studio Dog Bob, and enjoyed drive-through takeout cuisine several times. It was like the perfect trip for everyone. Thank you so much to all those who made it out, including a lovely lady who drove all the way from Frisco to see me! And a big thanks to Mary Katherine, Brandon, Elsie, and Studio Dog Bob for all their hard work in making this such a successful show.

Here is a re-post of a previous blog listing, back when it was cool outside and the irises were still blooming. I'm at my show in Fredericksburg, Texas, this weekend, but wanted to share some flowers with you while I am away - Enjoy!

It's been windy in North Texas lately, so my flower photos have been a bit of a challenge. My newest sunflower painting reflects a bit of the breezy weather outside. That weather outside didn't stop me from making the annual pilgrimage today to Argyle Acres Iris Gardens! This weekend was their sneak peek, and even better, the blooming season has started early because of rains a few weeks ago. With our sharpened number 2 pencil and order sheet in hand, we found about five new lovelies to add to our garden out back next year. The rhizomes will arrive in an airy, light box later, just in time for our new iris-hydrangea beds to be settled in for the fall.

This year I got to meet Sparkles and Annie, Joe and Donna Spears' two char peis, and I got a few kisses from Sparkles, who specializes in sharing those with friends. Joe and Donna say they are ready to sell the business and retire so they can take an Alaskan cruise, so if you know anyone who would like to run a successful, award winning iris business be sure to drop them a line on their web site! They're even offering a year of free consulting to start things off well.

Here are a few of my favorite photos from the gardens today, which are just a few miles up the road from our house. I'll share more over the next few weeks so don't be a stranger!
