Ragdoll Tulips and Sunflowers by Texas Flower Artist Nancy Medina

Class Demonstration


Ragdoll Tulips was a new sunflower demo for my workshop in Tennessee last month. Fueled by chocolate coated donuts and caffeine with a room full of absolutely delightful southern gals, we were a regular blossom assembly line in Collierville-Germantown for three days of painting flowers. This never would have been possible without the wonderful host and hostess, Emory and Carolyn Brown, and their two indispensable helpers, Morgan and Molly, who were the masterminds behind finding a place for the workshop and accommodations for the artist for my first out of state painting class! 

As an added bonus, Em brought us ladies gourmet donuts every morning! One of our local ladies and a very talented artist, Denise Rose, graciously cooked us dinner and entertained us in her beautiful home. It was quite the whirlwind of fun, painting flowers, and eating. Can you see why I'm plotting and planning my next trip to Tennessee soon?  

This gal needs to clean some paint off
her apron!

The models take a bow!

Dinner at Denise's house!

What a fresh and lovely piece, Nancy. I love the loose feeling...the sense of the flowers still being out in the ground (I don't know how to describe what I mean)...Truly beautiful and that vase just pops!
