Summer Tapestry White Roses and Sacred Spaces by Texas Flower Artist Nancy Medina

Summer Tapestry White Roses is a new small study in Flower Mound Studio, as I prepare to do a 30X40 painting of an outdoor white rose garden. In the meantime I'm packing up new artwork to take for my show at The Good Art Company Gallery next Friday evening, and supplies for a workshop there Friday through Sunday. It's going to be a total girls' weekend, driving up with a dear painty pal friend who always makes me giggle. The school at Baron's Creekside Resort sits at the top of a hill with cabins stretching out below, and is absolutely beautiful. The space around the school is peaceful and unspoiled and the light that comes in through the school windows is perfect.  

The more I paint, the more I am becoming a strong believer in good energy, and surrounding yourself with the things in life you love, shedding toxic things, toxic influences. My studio has become a bit of a sacred space, and I am very sensitive to that and try hard to always keep it that way. I shared these thoughts with my class in Irving, Texas, last week, and one of the students agreed enthusiastically, saying that she has incorporated those same thoughts into her life since her battle with breast cancer. She had just had her reconstruction surgery and looked amazing, healthy, and full of life. Wherever your sacred space is in your home, or even if it is in your garden, keep it filled with good energy, good intentions and prayers. It will carry you through, because in reality, it is the space that is you, and you are beautiful. You are worth loving, and you are sacred.

Oh those spots of orange are just wonderful! And what is that piece under the actual vase, Nancy? Is that a watercolor? It too is lovely.
