We had another awesome day painting flowers in Bedford, Texas, today, with 15 students in attendance for my Trinity Arts Guild class. I received an odd phone call yesterday evening. If the fellow hadn't sounded so sincere, I would have sworn this was junkmail email disguised as a human being on the other end of a telephone. The caller asked if I were the famous Nancy Medina Artist. I said, well, mmm, I am an artist... He then asked if I were the famous Nancy Medina Artist that he and his wife had rescued from drowning 5 years ago in Idaho when I jumped into a lake to save my blind dog. I said no, again, and I gave him points for originality, wondering if this were some sort of prank. But he went on, quite sincerely, and said that he was amazed there was more than one famous nancy Medina artist, and this other gal had given he and his wife a signed paintings as a thank you. We ended the discussion congenially, and I wished him best of luck in the search for the famous Nancy Medina artist. Ring any bells out there?

On another note, I felt just a little guilty yesterday that in my flower painting class with more than one male student, we painted pink peonies, so we painted yellow sunflowers today. Are sunflowers a more masculine flower? Hmmm, well, at least they weren't pink sunflowers! I tried posting a few more student photos here, but for some reason the rest of the photos are turning sideways in blogger. *twilight zone music*. Maybe tomorrow it will all sort itself out. In the meantime, here is a great picture of Cheri with her sunflowers today!
